Galinha à africana
There are many theories on where African Chicken originated, but all invariably attribute the dish to Macao's Portuguese colonial past.
One theory on the dish's origin states the dish is the brainchild of local chef Americo Angelo, who came up with the dish in a hotel kitchen in the 1940s, utilizing spices he obtained from a trip to Portugal's African colonies at the time, while another theory states the recipe has been passed down through Portuguese families in Macao for centuries.
Yet another theory states the recipe was brought to Macao by retired Portuguese Army officers in the aftermath of the Carnation Revolution, who opened cafés and served foods they came to like during their overseas service.
