This is such a simple and tasty dish and one that you can prepare early in the day and leave simmering in your Skillet with the lid on over a low heat while you get on to do other things. Brown off the chicken drumsticks in vegetable oil to start, then add the vegetables and fry lightly. Then add seasoning and spices and fry for a few minutes. Add coconut milk and let simmer until chicken is cooked. Add water if necessary.This dish tastes even better the second day if you are lucky enough to have leftovers.
We use the Petromax two handled fire skillet with the lid on for this dish, it’s great as it retains the heat and cooks nice and slowly over the day. When you’re finished the Skillet can be cleaned with warm water. Always let your Skillet cool down before cleaning it thoroughly with warm water and a dishwashing brush or sponge. (Never use dishwashing liquid or soap to clean the Fire Skillet, it can damage or even ruin the patina)Then dry thoroughly and apply a thin layer of fat on the cast-iron parts before storing away in a dry place.
Use a neutral oil, vegetable fat or the Petromax Care and Seasoning Conditioner. Do not use Olive oil as it burns out too quickly.
