Chicken Meatballs With Red Sauce (Benin)
45 mins (prep 20, cooking 25)
10 ingredients
6 servings
I used this recipe for week 29 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook on meal from every nation on Earth, and Benin is my 29th stop. Please note that I never use any recipe for my blog that I'm not reasonably sure is from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. I've always liked chicken with peanuts, and this recipe is definitely the best of both worlds.
