When thinking about YASSA, what it comes first in  mind is ONIONS! Exactly, onions are the foundation of the delicious recipe, but don’t let that scare you from making this dish. When you make it, you will see how well the onions complement the flavor of the Chicken. Trust me; Chicken Yassa will be unthinkable without Onions! You will be wowed!

A well-made Yassa chicken speaks for itself, but I will like to add that the more the onions, the better the Yassa.
