Nigerian Spicy Chicken Sauce


Nigerian Spicy Chicken Sauce

This sauce is a version of chicken curry sauce. What sets this dish apart is it’s full of fresh vegetables, including tomatoes. In addition, no flour is added for thickening. The first time I ate this dish, it was cooked by a friend who is from Nigeria. Although I misplaced the recipe that she shared with me, which she had learned from her mother, I was able to replicate the dish following her careful directions. I recommend you save the recipe, because you’ll also want to have the dish more than once.
