Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Recipe

In Cameroon there’s a scrumptious chicken recipe called Poulet DG, which is really just a fancy name for Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Recipe. The chicken thighs are cooked in a cast iron skillet alongside vegetables like bell peppers, green beans, and plantains and then coated in a yummy parsley sauce.

  • Olive oil for frying
  • 2 bunch parsley
  • 8 stalks green onions chopped

  • 2 inches ginger root grated

  • 2 tsp garlic minced

  • Black pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 handful green beans ends trimmed and washed
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 3 plantains slightly ripe, sliced into rounds about one inch thick

Instructions

  • Season your chicken to taste with black pepper and salt.
  • Coat the bottom of your pan in olive oil, about ⅛-1/4 inc thick. Heat the oil in a large pan on your stove top.
  • Fry the chicken on both sides until it turns brown but doesn’t cook all the way through.
  • Remove the chicken and set on a plate.
  • Blend parsley, green onion, olive oil, ginger, garlic, celery, white pepper, and salt in a blender.
  • Add the blender mixture into the large pan along with a bouillon cube and heat for a few moments until the bouillon cube melts.
  • Add ¼ cup water, green beans, carrots, and red bell pepper into the pot and cook for about 15 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Add chicken back in and cook, covered for another 20.
  • While the chicken is cooking, slice the plantains into inch slices. Fry them in a little bit of oil so that they become slightly crispy and cook through.
  • After the chicken and vegetables are done cooking, arrange the plantains in the pan. Serve and enjoy!
