Kuku Paka ( East African Style Chicken in Coconut Curry)

Title

Kuku-Paka

This traditional East African dish is a staple in our house. It is one of the first dishes I learned to make from my mom and can also be made in less than 30 minutes. The recipe here calls for chicken breast, but any other chicken cut, drumstick and/or chicken thighs may be used as well.
