“In Jollof, the rice is cooked along with other ingredients, rather than as a separate starch. Jollof contains just about everything you need for a one-dish meal. I think this recipe is so flavorful and delicious. I find myself going back for seconds of the rice with veggies. Don't skip the cabbage (unless your really hate cabbage) because it really adds flavor to the rice. Yum!! I omit the ham. Recipe from chef Angela Shelf Medearis.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour the water into a large pot. Add the chicken, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in the ham, rice, onion, cabbage, green beans, cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until the chicken is fork-tender and the rice is cooked - about 25 to 30 minutes. *You can choose to simmer it longer if you want to cook out more of the liquid. It's up to you. Enjoy!
