This savory, nutty and spicy one pot African chicken curry is my absolute favourite. The juicy chicken thighs marinated in a light spice mixture, cooked with loads of green peppers gives this dish a whole load of flavour to go with a bowl of steamed rice.
Chicken curry with rice is just comfort food for me. I love the simple flavours in this dish that pair so well with some steamed rice or chapati’s. My recipe is a a Kenyan style chicken curry that is also sometimes referred to as Dhania chicken in a lot of restaurants around Kenya.
This dish is so simple and sometimes referred to as kuku na nazi. This kuku paka recipe is a favourite amongst the family. It originates from the East African Coast with influence from the Indian cuisine.
“Koroga” is a Swahili word that means “stir” and is very popular amongst Kenyans during the weekends. It is often done under “Banda’s” which mean “huts” and one is provided with a jiko (clay stove), large sufurias (pots), vegetables or meats and a range of spices along with any extra condiments. My chicken koroga is a home made version of the same that is cooked with a range of aromatic spices and good cuts of chicken. You can also add some yoghurt or cream to the gravy to make it richer. Serve the chicken koroga with hot chapatis or jeera rice.
This is one of the simplest and one of the most popular Indian dishes around the world. My Chicken Makhani recipe is a restaurant style curry made at home with simple and fresh ingredients and a variety of spices. Infact, my husband says it’s even better than what you get in restaurants. This dish goes perfectly well with hot naans or jeera rice.
An old but favourite recipe! This Cajun Chicken, while not very authentic, celebrates the lovely flavours of the Cajun Cuisine. You can easily get Cajun spice in super markets nowadays, but I love to make my own combination at home. It’s just so easy to make. Serve this dish with steamed Basmati or Aromatic rice.
Who doesn’t like chicken and who doesn’t like peanut butter? Well, atleast for me, the combination of the two is my favourite. This African Chicken & Peanut Stew, a specialty in West Africa, is packed with flavour. A sprinkle of roasted and roughly chopped peanuts for garnish gives it a crunch. Pair this dish with some steamed Basmati Rice for a complete dinner.
