Poulet DG (Chicken and plantains )

Chicken and plantains are two important ingredients used a lot in the African cuisine. And my favorite way to enjoy both of them is with this recipe of Cameroon called Poulet DG  which is a casserole  of chicken, plantains and vegetables. This recipe is not only delicious but It can also be very healthy if less amount of oil is used.
