  • The simplest version of this traditional classic is short on effort but delivers big on flavor and African warmth. It is the true definition of comfort food and every bite hugs your soul. No wonder it is beloved in every region of the African continent. Our recipe is authentic and foolproof making it easy enough to be enjoyed any day of the week.


    • 1 jar Maffé Peanut Simmer Sauce

    • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened peanut butter (required)

    • 6-8 bone-in skinless drumsticks

    • 1 cups water

    • ½ – 1 tsp. sugar

    • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce (we recommend Red Boat)

    • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

    • ¼ tsp. salt (or to taste)


    1. Empty Maffe into a heavy-bottomed pan, add the water to the jar and shake well (with lid tightly screwed on) to release any sauce clinging to the jar. Pour into pan. Add peanut butter; stir with a whisk until smooth.

    2. Add chicken pieces. Stir to coat chicken pieces. Bring to a boil and immediately turn down to a simmer

    3. Simmer covered for 45 minutes stirring halfway

    4. Stir in lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, and salt

    5. Allow sauce to sit for 5 minutes uncovered on stove before serving

    6. Serve over cooked jasmine rice or couscous with lime wedges and kaani sauce tableside

    Recipe Notes

    • For a more intense peanut flavor, increase amount of peanut butter by 1-2 Tbsp

    • At the end of cooking, the oil will either pool or form droplets on top of the sauce; it’s the natural oils separating from the peanuts. Stir and enjoy

    • Maffé is best enjoyed spicy if you ask us. Dollop our traditional hot sauce on top just like it’s done in Senegal. It’s a gamechanger

    • Serve with lime wedges
