Recipes We Love - Nigerian Chicken Pepper Soup

Posted by Sable Massingill on

Fall is here, and for many that means we are looking for all the cozy and comforting things. That includes food too- it’s also unofficially soup season. And to celebrate that, we’re sharing a favorite Nigerian recipe, perfect for nights in – Chicken Pepper Soup. This is not your average soup, think instead of a spiced up, immunity boosting, more flavorful version of a classic chicken noodle soup. It’s hearty and delicious enough to be enjoyed on its own, but you can also serve it with white rice or boiled plantains.

Read below for the recipe, sourced via My Diaspora Kitchen:

Ingredients:

  •  1 Large whole Chicken 
  • 1 Large Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp chicken bouillon powder (or 2 seasoning cubes)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 to 1 Tbsp Cameroon Pepper (you can substitute with 2 habanero peppers)
  • 1 Tbsp Crayfish (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper-soup spice*
  • 2-3 Scent leaves (nchianwu) (finely chopped, you can also use Parsley flakes)

 

Instructions:

  1. Place the washed and cut up chicken in a pot.
  2. Add 6 cups of water, the chopped onions, salt and 2 seasoning cubes. Bring to a boil.
  3. When it begins to boil, add the pepper soup spice, Cameroon pepper and crayfish (if using).
  4. Cook until chicken is tender, then lower heat.
  5. Add the chopped scent leaves. Allow to simmer for about a minute, then turn off. 
  6. Your soup is ready. Enjoy!!!
