Moyo de Poulet Fumé

Combining smoke and heat, this dish is easy and quick to assemble. If you like fiery food, cut long slits in the peppers to release their juices. Four jalapeños, which are more readily available, may be substituted for the habaneros (also called Scotch bonnets), but the habaneros contribute a flavor all their own. Smoked chicken is available in specialty meat shops. Serve hot over rice.

4 servings


  • 1 2 1/2 pound smoked chicken, skinned

  • 6 medium ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped, or one 28-ounce can with juices, chopped

  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil

  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 habanero chiles, pierced with a fork


  1. Cut chicken into 4 serving pieces (discard backbone). Combine chicken, tomatoes, onions, broth, oil, soy sauce and chiles in a wide saucepan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally until the flavors have melded and the onions are tender, about 20 minutes.


People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
