People in Ivory Coast call it kedjenou poulet or kedjenou de poulet.

The popular Ivorian dish is a traditional chicken stew prepared with chicken pieces, tomatoes, okra, onions, chili peppers, eggplants, ginger, chicken broth, thyme, and garlic.

The spicy stew is slow-cooked in a sealed clay pot known as canari, which is then placed over a fire or hot coals.

Kedjenou, when ready, is typically served with attieke (flaked cassava) or white rice.
