Who doesn’t love a filling and flavourful pot pie? This is one dish that I first cooked for my husband, who at that time was just my boyfriend, and my father-in-law. My Chicken & Rice Pot Pie is a combination of chicken and vegetables mixed with a rich and creamy sauce and layered with a pastry that is baked to a nice golden and flaky crust. This version also has rice in it however, feel free to leave out the rice if you’re not keen on a very heavy meal.
Not a fan of chicken wings? Get out of here! No, but seriously, how can you not like chicken wings? Especially these spicy but sweet perfect wings in a soy based sauce served with steamed rice. Yummy yummy in my tummy!
Pack potatoes are commonly known as Viazi Karai and are the most delicious snack sold at almost every corner at the Coast of Kenya. They are boiled and filled with a chili-sour paste, coated with a different type of tempura batter and deep fried. One just can’t have enough of these!
We Kenyan’s love to use coconut in most of our recipes. Now you can include it in your grilled chicken too. The coconut cream mellows down the spice in this recipe and blend creates an absolutely amazing marinade for this chicken. Serve this spiced coconut chicken on a bed of yellow rice for a complete meal.
Simple, perfectly spiced and absolutely delicious! This Kidney Bean Rice will make your day that much tastier.
Chicken Biryani is a beautifully flavoured rice dish that is often layered with a spiced chicken/mutton/beef/vegetarian gravy and rice that is infused with whole spices. Traditionally, a chicken biryani involves a lot of steps including marinating the meat, frying the vegetables for layering, loads of coriander and mint leaves, fried eggs, saffron milk etc. My version is a simplified recipe that gives you those exquisite flavours.
Serve with some plain yoghurt and lemon pickle or kachumbari.
