How to make it

- ~While chicken is sitting make the Berbere Spice Mix~
- Anniez Berbere Spice Mix
- Mix all ingredients. Place in a tightly covered container and store in a cool, dark place. This mixture can used with many combinations of legumes, rice or vegetables.
- In a heavy enamel stewpot, cook the onions over moderate heat for about 5 minutes. Do not let brown or burn.
- Stir in the niter kebbeh. Then add the garlic and spices. Stir well.
- Add the berbere and paprika, and saute for 3-4 minutes.
- Pour in the wine and water and bring to a boil. Cook briskly, uncovered, for about 5 minutes.
- Pat the chicken dry and drop it into the simmering sauce, turning the pieces about until coated on all sides.
- Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, piece the hard-boiled eggs with the tines of a fork, piercing approximately 1/4" into the egg all over the surface.
- After the chicken has cooked, add the eggs and turn them gently in the sauce.
- Cover and cook the doro wat for 15 minutes more, or until the chicken is tender and the dark meat shows no resistance when pierced with the point of a small sharp knife.
- Add pepper to taste, if needed.
