How to: make Ghanaian chicken stew

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.Ghanaian chicken stewStart by cutting up a whole chicken. You can substitute a whole chicken with chicken breast if you are looking for a healthier choice.Ghanaian chicken stewOnce 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.Ghanaian chicken stewAs the chicken cook, I gather my ingredients to blend.
