Chicken is used in preparing  so many Nigerian recipes, especially the Rice recipes and stew recipes. Chicken can also be eaten as a snack and washed down with a chilled drink.

Grilling your chicken gives does not only taste better, it’s also healthier so it is better to grill your chicken after cooking it rather than deep-fry it.




Stock cubes     



Salt should be added sparingly and should be added when the chicken is done

You want to season your chicken so that it will be very tasty and you also want to prepare it such that it will be presentable and appetizing.

Directions for Grilling Chicken

  1. Cut up the whole chicken to desired pieces. Most grocers or meat sellers will do this for you and save you the job.
  2. Put the chicken pieces in a pot; add diced onions, thyme and stock cubes.

Pour enough water to just cover the contents of the pot and start cooking. Keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t get too soft.

  1. Transfer the chicken to a sieve to drain and then dip your chicken in groundnut oil and place on your oven rack, place the rack as close to the grill (the top heater in your oven) as possible. If you want your chicken to have moisture you pour water into the the oven rack before you put your chicken on the grill rack.
  2. Close your oven and leave for 20 minutes and once the top side becomes brown, turn the pieces of chicken on the other side. The chicken is well-grilled when both sides are brown. For your chicken not to be completely dry you can sprinkle oil on the chicken from time to time.

Serve with all the Nigerian Rice recipes, plus your delicious Nigerian Moi Moi and Salad. Feel free to snack on it with a chilled drink. Your guests will definitely be in love with you if you serve them grilled chicken.
