Direction

Step 1: Start by adding the dried beans in a pot, cover with water then add the baking soda and ½ tsp. of salt. Bring it boil, cook for 3h or until the beans are fully cooked.

When the beans are cooked, drain them from water and set aside.

Note: Adding the baking soda helps cook the beans faster. If you don’t add any, cooking the beans might take 5 to 6 hours.

Step 2: In a saucepan, heat the vegetable oil and brown the chicken. You can season the chicken with salt and fry until brown.

Then remove from the hot oil and set aside.

Step 3: On the oil you fried the chicken, add the onion and tomatoes, stir well. Then add garlic, parsley, basil leaves, black pepper and bouillon cube to your taste.

Cover with a cup of water and let simmer for 5 min.

Step 4: In the tomato sauce, return the fried chicken and cook for 5 more min while stir occasionally.

Step 5: Add the cooked beans and close the lid, reduce the heat and cook on low until liquid is almost absorbed (5 to 10 min).

 Serve hot with bread or rice.

Enjoy!
