I was taken back about trying this recipe but its good.
Imoyo refers to the name given dishes of this type by slaves liberated from Brazil who settled in Lagos. Very often onions, peppers, and tomatoes are not cooked but added raw at the last moment. Imoyo is generally served with cassava flour dumplings cooked in the drained chicken stock. Try it is good.
