Nigerian chicken Stew

Nigerian chicken stew is the recipe I will be showing you today. Chicken is one of the proteins eaten in my household, we love it!. The process involves boiling then frying or baking of the chicken then rehydrates in the stew or soup. The chicken/hens used in preparing the stew is hard hence the boiling part.

If you’re using soft chicken you don’t have to boil, season the chicken and cook in the oven until the chicken is cooked and slightly brown and if you decide to boil it is okay. For the pepper used in this Nigerian chicken stew, you can roast the peppers, boil before blending or blend then boil. I have a post on the blog that shows how to roast pepper if you decide to roast your pepper. Check it out  How to roast pepper

This stew is a “multipurpose” stew, it can be eaten with bread, rice, swallow; fufu, eba, amala, amala oat etcetera.
