MAURITIAN CHICKEN DAUBE RECIPE

MAURITIAN CHICKEN DAUBE RECIPE

Daube de poulet is a popular Mauritian dish with French origins, consisting of chicken that is fried with various spices, ginger, onions, and garlic. 

The meat is then stewed in a rich tomato sauce with chilis. Originally, French settlers brought the classic daube dish with them to Mauritius, and over time, the locals substituted beef with chicken.

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE MAURITIAN CHICKEN DAUBE RECIPE

Over medium heat, heat the oil in a large pan or skillet. Add the onion and cook for a few minutes, then add the garlic and ginger and mix everything together. 

Stir in the thyme, chilli, cinnamon stick and chopped fresh tomato and sauté for another 2 minutes.

Then add the canned tomatoes, chopped cilantro, white wine and sugar, then crumble a stock cube into the mixture. Stir frequently to avoid burning  and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the potatoes and chicken pieces, then cover and simmer over low heat for about 20-25 minutes. If the sauce dries out, add a little water to loosen it.

Check that the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are tender, season to taste and discard the cinnamon stick. Serve warm with rice.
