This Jollof recipe is what we call a one-dish wonder. Jollof is a popular rice dish from West Africa. The dish is typically made with long-grain rice, tomatoes, onions, spices, vegetables and meat in a single pot. The ingredients and preparation methods may vary significantly across different regions.
Jollof rice, similar to jambalaya, is a one-pot dish that varies drastically across West African nations, leading to one of the most all-in-good-fun national competitions in the world. See #Jollofwars.
Typically goat meat is used in Jollof rice, but we changed the recipe to use chicken, but I have also seen Jollof recipes using beef as the meat. The meat choice is a personal preference and may change to what is popular in a specific region. Besides the difference in meat choices the other ingredients used in Jollof rice are almost always the same.
