Chicken Yassa is an African dish with its roots from the Casamance region of Senegal. It’s basically a flavorful chicken marinated in onion, lemon and spices then grilled or fried and later cooked with lots of onion.
It’s best enjoyed with cooked rice. Yassa can also be made with fish (fish yassa) where fish is substituted for chicken. It’s also not unusual to see olives and chopped vegetables added to give the dish a wholesome taste. Ever since the day i tried this tasty dish made by my sister in-law from Senegal, i fell totally in love. So if you’re looking for what to make with chicken, look no further. Hope you like!
