Chicken Hot-dog Jollof pasta

For this chicken and hotdog jollof pasta, I cooked Elbow macaroni in a rich, flavorful and well-seasoned tomato stew made with chicken and hotdog. About twice a week, my mom makes this for my kids and the love it. This recipe of is crazy good and fun to make.

We all have Elbow macaroni in our pantry. The Elbow macaroni can be cooked on the stove on in the microwave until it is soft or “Al dente. Elbow macaroni can also be use for mac and cheese, pasta salad…

  • 1 chicken cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon ginger 
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 allspice
  • 3 tablespoon garlic
  • 3 thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cube
  • Salt

Marinate the chicken with the thymes, ginger, cloves, all spice, garlic, cube and salt overnight.

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Sliced onion
  • 6 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tomatoes purée
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cube
  • 4 hotdog in 2
  • 1 packet of pre-cooked macaroni (250g of elbow pasta)

Heat the Oil and sear the chicken. Remove and set aside.

Add the onion and fry for 4 minutes.

Add the tomato paste and tomato.

Stir soup and add remaining cube and the chicken, lower flame, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. 

Add the hotdog and cook for 2 min and add the macaroni. Salt to taste and cook for 1 min.

Serve warm.

Notes:

  • Because I use fresh tomato and canned tomato, I add a pinch of baking soda to balance out the acidity.
  • To cut down the cooking time, the chicken can be pressure cooked.
  • It’s really easy to make to precook the pasta. For a box of Elbow macaroni, bring approximately 6 liters of water to a boil and add salt. Once the water starts to boil add the Elbow macaroni [Follow the instruction on the box for the timing]. Put a lid on the pot and give some room for the steam to escape. Use a spoon to stir the noodles so they don’t clump together as they cook. Bring back to a boil and cook for 7 minutes [1 minutes less than the time indicated on the box, because the Elbow macaroni will cook further in the tomato sauce]. Drain the Elbow macaroni. I add a little oil to avoid that the noodle sticks together.
