For a straightforward midweek meal we tried Jollof Chicken and Rice from Best Chicken recipes.
This is a well-known West African dish and the version we chose involved cooking chicken pieces with garlic, thyme, canned tomatoes, tomato purée, onion, chicken stock, dried ground shrimps, green chilli and long-grain rice. A pleasant meal, but we would look to try a more flavoursome version next time.
French Sauvignons are often good with dishes with tomato sauces and we opened a bottle of Petit Villebois Sauvignon Blanc 2013, a French white from Naked Wines.
This was crisp with flavours of apples and grapefruit, some minerality and a fresh and tangy finish. A very good match with the meal.
