The name “Chicken Tikka” starts to make you drool. Chicken tikka is so simple to make and always great for those barbecue’s with the family and friends. It is marinated in a spicy yoghurt mixture and cooked over some coal to give it that delicious smoky flavour. You haven’t visited Kenya if you haven’t had chicken tikka at most of the famous barbecue restaurants around the city. I pair mine with a spicy rice, but chicken tikka can be a meal in itself.
Sometimes I just want a very simple roast that requires minimum effort but still tastes amazing. And when that happens this is the recipe I always go to. Simple, succulent chicken served with nutty and rich gravy, what a combination!
There is something so special about eating Kienyeji chicken. For me, maybe it’s the fact that it takes so long to cook, but is tender to perfection. I serve my kienyeji chicken wet fry with a peanut butter sukuma wiki that goes perfectly well with Ugali.
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.
If there is one dish on every Indian restaurant menu, it has to be the chicken tikka masala. This dish consists of perfectly grilled chicken cubes marinated in a flavourful mix of yoghurt and spices mixed into a beautifully cooked curry sauce consisting of a tomato base. Give the dish even more flavour by grilling the chicken over an open flame on a jiko to give it that yummy barbecue taste and aroma. Enjoy this dish with a side of steamed or jeera rice.
