Doro Alicha (Mild chicken stew)

Ethiopian Entree

DORO ALICHA
(Mild chicken stew)

INGREDIENTS

3 pounds white onions
1 garlic clove
2 chicken breasts
2 cups Niter Kibbeh (See recipe in this book for this spicy butter.)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup red wine
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt

water
6 eggs

Goes well with injera, Ethiopian flat bread.

PREPARATION

Peel and mince 3 pounds onions. (You’ll cry over this recipe.) Mince garlic clove. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. Put chicken cubes in bowl. Coat chicken cubes with lime juice, pepper, ginger, and salt.

Put onion, garlic, Niter Kibbeh, water, and wine in large pot and saute at medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Stir frequently.) Add coated chicken cubes. Simmer for 45 minutes at warm heat, or until most of the water is gone, and it looks like a stew. (Remember, most people have no idea what Doro Alicha looks like. So no matter how it turns out, say it came out well.) Stir occasionally.

Meanwhile back at the range, boil eggs, peel them, and slice them into fourths. (Head ‘em up, move ‘em out.) Put eggs on top of stew and serve.

TIDBITS

1) Lucy, a 3.2-million-year old human skeleton, was discovered in Ethiopia in 1974

2) Lucy van Pelt, the character from the comic strip Peanuts was created in 1951.

3) Lucy of Ethiopia was for many years the oldest human skeleton. Unfortunately, just lost her oldest status to Selam, a 3.45 million year old skeleton. Honestly, you don’t look a day over 3 million.

4) The last new comic strip featuring Lucy van Pelt ran in early 2000.

5) The new millennium has not been kind to either Lucy.

6) Lucy van Pelt used to whisk away the football before Charlie Brown could kick it.

7) Maybe, just maybe, Lucy of Ethiopia did the same thing to another boy 3.2 millions ago?

8) And did they have tailgate parties at football games way back then?
