Berbere, a blend of sweet and piquant spices, is the secret weapon in this utterly delicious Ethiopian chicken stew.
Berbere is very spicy; reduce the amount in the recipe to taste if you prefer a mild dish.
Delicious. Made it as described with the exception of using chicken thighs instead of chicken breast, making my own berbere. Also, found a recipe for the cabbage potato dish mentioned (All Recipes Ethiopian Cabbage Dish) and it made a great side dish for the Doro Wat. My husband, the picky eater, had two big helpings of everything. - 19 Jul 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I loved it! Berbere seasoning can be expensive and hard to find so prepare yourself. - 25 Feb 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Just quick note: onions are not on ingredient list but is first item in recipe! ALSO!!! Probably a mistaken amount of berbere. Maybe 2/3 tablespoon? Came out great with 2 teaspoons (quite spicy). I eat Ethiopian food whenever I can. Nice to have a good recipe for home prep. - 01 Feb 2018 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
