Suya (Nigerian Chicken Skewers)

Nuvita Biscuits


  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons cayenne powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts, finely minced
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Slice the chicken into thin pieces. Sprinkle with the seasoning mix, and allow to sit for 5 minutes.

  4. Grill or broil for 3 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through.

Note: if using wooden skewers, soak them for at least half an hour before using to avoid burning!

    Can someone recommend a simple, yet tasty Nigerian recipe that includes either beef, chicken legs, or steak, and preferably tomato sauce-that I can cook in a slow cooker?

    I love making Dixie Stampede’s cream of vegetable soup, but it calls for flour and my Boyfriend’s sister has celiacs disease. If I was ever to make it for his family I’d have to use something else besides flour. My first thought is cornstarch, but I’m not sure how well it would work in the soup.
    Does anyone know how well cornstarch would work?

    3 tablespoons margarine (I use salted butter)
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon corn syrup
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1 1/2 cups water

    I have all the indivdual ingredients for a curry powder, but every recipe I have found so far online calls for seeds, not ground powders. Or an easy way to convert seed measurments to ground powder measurments.

    ok, here’s the deal. I’ve got plain white bread, butter and margarine, and garlic powder, garlic salt, and chopped garlic in a jar. Using these ingredients (any or all of them), how do you suggest I make some edible if not appetizing garlic bread to serve with spaghetti? Oviously, doesn’t have to be anything fancy…

    What is it even made of, butter and garlic powder? I have a frozen pizza and don’t feel like ordering a whole ‘nother pizza just to get some of that garlic dipping sauce.

    This is not a question but I thought someone might apreciate the recipie. Its very good, I thought it up but im sure someone else out there has tried it too. This is very good served with steak.

    Wash potatos, and poke holes in them with knife.
    Microwave your potatos until done, cut them in half length wise
    poke holes in the meat of the potato with fork, and then butter it, be generous, season the buttered side with:
    season salt
    garlic powder,
    and dried itallian sesoning,

    heat up your gas grill when your steaks are almost done put potatos on seasoned side down, and cook untill as crispy as you like them. They are so very good and so so simple and a good alternitive to a baked potato for steak etc.
    Try them you will never eat a baked potato again lol!!! Good Luck and Enjoy!
    i put butter and sour cream on them after they are done, but use your imagination lol they are good with any topping! that you would use for a regular baked potato!
