Happy Wednesday all,
I’ve been meaning to share the foods I cook with you for a long time, but I always forget to take pictures when I am cooking. But things have changed, and today I have a food post for you. I will be showing you how to make Ghanaian chicken stew. Enjoy and do keep in my mind that this was made for a group of 5 people and meant to be eaten at least 3 or 4 times within the week.Start by cutting up a whole chicken. You can substitute a whole chicken with chicken breast if you are looking for a healthier choice.Once the chicken is all cut up, I dice some onions and put everything in a pot, add some salt and placed it on the fire to cook.As the chicken cook, I gather my ingredients to blend. I have here: habenero pepper, onion, ginger, tomato sauce (can also use fresh tomatoes), garlic, and maggi cubes or use salt if you cannot find any.
everything blended!After blending everything up, I put some olive oil(or any oil you have) in a pot and turn on the stove.I cut slices of onions and put them in the hot oil and let it simmer for a while.After letting the onions cook for a bit, I put my blended ingredients in the oil with the onions. I allow it to cook for about 30 minutes
This is how the chicken looks like after it is cooked. this is optional. I fried the chicken for a little hardness, but it is not a necessary step.I added the chicken broth from the chicken I cooked to the pot and let it cook for about 15 minutesthen I added some spices to the pot. I love love love the smell of rosemary. I let everything cook for about 45 minutes, then I add the chicken to the stew.I let everything sit on the fire for an additional 20 minutes or so, then the chicken stew is ready.
serve with rice or a side of your choice.
much love, SAA
