Welcome to chicken galore, my friends! Hands up if you often wonder what to do with all the chicken in your life. I am here to help. Here are 10 African chicken recipes that will literally change your life for good! They are ridiculously easy to make and all recipes are detailing explained so you can make delicious happen right where you are!

Now let me say here that some of the pictures in this post do not reflect my present photography skills. They are pictures from when my photography was “anyhow”. Now that I have improved, I felt somehow putting the old pictures in this post. But you know, I can’t allow the quest for perfect pictures prevent a good thing.

And the good here is that this post is loaded with chicken recipes to make meal planning easier for you. So let’s go there!

1. Whole Roasted Chicken

2. Chicken and Plantains

Known in French as “Poulet DG”, this chicken and plantain dish appeals to every single taste bud I have introduced it to. The combo of chicken and plantains marinated in tasty tomato sauce is epic! Get the recipe here.

3. Chicken Pepper Soup

Chicken Pepper Soup

Pepper soup is a common meal in countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Cameroon. It is hot, spicy, light and so good! This version made with chicken is so full of flavour and easy to make. You basically just dump all the ingredients into the pot and let them cook together. Get the recipe here.

4. Chicken Rolls
