Ethiopian Berbere Chicken

Ethiopian Berbere Chicken

After buying some berbere spice mix, it’s been on bloody everything since! It’s so delicious… thankfully I used the last of it for this simple chicken stew from Ethiopia. The spice mix really adds depth of flavour to this dish. Maybe now I can eat something that isn’t Ethiopian…
