Chicken Dorowat (Ethiopian Chicken Stew)

This was SO amazingly good!  It had a fabulous flavor to it!  I didn't add nearly as much paprika or cayenne as it called for, and it was not hot at all.  So, the kids loved it!  It was super easy to make too!

8 oz tomato sauce
1/8 cup paprika (recipe called for 1/4 cup!)
1/4 cup red wine
1 Tbsp fresh ginger paste (can buy in a tube, already smashed up in deli section!)
1 tsp cayenne pepper (recipe called for 2 tsp)
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground all spice
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ground tumeric
1 tsp salt
3 pounds chicken breasts or thighs, diced up (I used thighs)
1/4 cup red wine

1.  Make the red pepper sauce first, combine tomato sauce, paprika, 1/4 cup red wine, fresh ginger, cayenne pepper, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and all spice.  Set aside.

2.  In a large skillet (or wok), cook onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is tender but not brown.  Stir in red pepper sauce, tumeric, and salt.  Add chicken pieces to skillet.  Stir together and reduce heat; cover.  Simmer on low for about 30 minutes.

3.  Stir in 1/4 cup dry red wine.  Cook uncovered about 15 minutes.  Stir frequently, skim off fat.  Serve with injera.
