Doro Wat

And here is the Doro Wat recipe from Exotic Ethiopian Cooking, which, as 
I've made many times with excellent results.

1 whole chicken, skinned and cut into parts
6 cups red onions, chopped
1 cup berbere
2 cups spiced butter
1/4 tsp. cardamom
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
salt to taste
1/2 cup red wine
4 cups water (or less)
6 hard boiled eggs
1 medium lime.

Quarter the lime. Soak the chicken in a bowl with lime quarters. Brown 
the onions in a pan without grease. Add spiced butter. Add red pepper and 
mix well. Add 1/2 cup water and stir. Add wine. Add all spices and blend 
well. Add chicken and cook for about 30-40'. Add more water and stir 
gently. Add salt and stir. When sauce begins to thicken sprinkle with 
black pepper. Add hard-boiled eggs to the sauce.

See index for berbere and spiced butter recipes, and the Doro Alicha recipe
for my suggestions on how to serve Ethiopian food.
