So I went to Orleans to Mamy Coco’s house to cook with her the yassa chicken, this magnificent dish from Casamance. Made with onions, lemon juice and mustard, this chicken is wonderful with rice. Mamy Coco adds her personal touch with carrots and peppers to add a little color to this richly flavored dish. In Casamance, where it comes from, the yassa chicken is often less lemony and “mustarded” than those found today in Dakar, for example. It’s up to you to judge the amount of acidity that will best excite your taste buds!
|A big thank you to Mamy Coco!|
