Mozambique Chicken

Mozambique Chicken


45 people made this

The flavours of this family favourite remind me of childhood summer holidays in Mozambique. Serve the chicken hot on rice or couscous, or cold with salad in pita bread, wraps or on a breadroll. If you don't have a slow cooker, you can marinate the chicken in a casserole for a few hours, then cook (covered) in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees C for 40 minutes or until done.

Didn't want to heat the kitchen up in this heat so decided to use my slow cooker. This recipe my 14 year old made and it was so simple. Quite tasty, but did notice it dried out a little, added half a cup of water towards the end. Next time would probable add half a tin of crushed tomatoes or some stock. Will make it again. - 14 Jan 2013

So delicious and tender! The meat just fell apart! I didn't have a slow cooker so i cooked it in a baking dish covered in foil at 180 for 40 mins then at 160 for another 30 mins - 23 Mar 2010
