This is a delicious Senegalese Dish. To eat it in the traditional way,
put the chicken and the sauce over rice (but I prefer cuscus) in a large
pot. Have you and your guests sit around it. Each person should dig into
the part of the pot closest to them and take a mouthful of rice and
chicken, using only his/her right hand. The left hand should never be put
inside the pot. Sometimes you need to ask someone else for help to break
a part of the chicken, that's part of the fun. The middle section of the
pot is open to all.
