Chicken Suya Recipe

As the weather here is going crazy…lol one needs some spice to get through the day. Throughout last week, the kids went to school just one day that was how day the weather was. There was snow every other day and icy road so the schools were closed and the only day the went it was also 2 hours delay… Sigh!

While we were at home I made some chicken suya, my kids love suya and catfish pepper soup those are the only dishes that will make them eat spicy food…lol, with a lot of milk to neutralize the spiciness and to think that the spice is not too hot they must drink milk…lol

This is a very simple chicken suya recipe and it is not too spicy for anyone that like a little bit of heat, but that will depend on your Suya spice. I have been wanting to make about the suya spice but postponing it, I will try to make a post about.

I have all the ingredients just to take the pictures of the ingredients, the quantities and make a post about it but because I have some I already made I didn’t have any urgency in making it but I will try and make a post about it.
