Jollof rice with chicken

Jollof rice with chicken

My wife loves Jamie Oliver, has long been unanswered. At first I didn't pay attention to it: where Oliver is, and where is she? They are separated by 8500 km, and his wife - model and five children. But recently the wife made me jealous. Became involved on one site in competition for Oliver's recipes, where the main prize was a lunch (dinner) with this Jamie. Don't know where they would have been slaughtered "arrow", and as much as she gets. But the site (Thank God) safely collapsed, the winner was never announced. On the eve of Women's day decided to please his wife and cooked her dinner on prescription Jamie. I want to say, as a cook, he's a nice guy man. But I "scrappy" and am worth something. This dish belongs to the African kitchen.
