Kedjenou is a magnificent chicken dish that is astoundingly easy to make. It is chicken that is based in its own juice in a “canary,” or earthenware jar, on a wood fire.

This tasty chicken is a very popular dish in Ivory Coast. It is believed to have originated from Baoulé; an ethnic group in Ivory Coast. According to several sources, the word kedjenou comes from the Baoulé language which means to move or shake. While braising the chicken the pot is frequently shaken, vigorously, so that the chicken or sauce does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
