  • 3 lbs chicken thighs or breasts, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp bouillon (or 1 bouillon cube)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chicken seasoning
  • 1 tsp complete seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp green seasoning (blended)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2-3 lbs bora (long bean), chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • Chopped scallions (eschalot)
  • Chopped parsley
  • Thyme
  • Wiri wiri or chili peppers (optional)
  • 1/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar (or Chinese sauce)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 2-3 tbsp cooking oil

  1. Wash the chicken pieces with lemon and pat them dry.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken with the bouillon, salt, chicken seasoning, complete seasoning, black pepper, and green seasoning. Mix well and let it marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  3. In a large pot, heat 2-3 tablespoons of oil over medium heat. Add the brown sugar (or Chinese sauce) and allow it to caramelize until it turns a dark brown color.
  4. Add the chicken to the pot and let it sit for 1-2 minutes before stirring. Add the tomato sauce and stir well. Cover the pot with a lid and let the chicken cook until all of the juices have been released and evaporated, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  5. Add the bora, potatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, scallions, parsley, thyme, and wiri wiri or chili peppers (if using) to the pot with the chicken. Stir well.
  6. Add the bouillon, complete seasoning, seasoned salt, black pepper, and water to the pot. Stir well and cover the pot with a lid.
  7. Let the bora and chicken cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is fully cooked. Stir occasionally and add more water if necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, if needed.
Serve hot with steamed rice or roti. Enjoy!
