Peppered Chicken is an incredible expansion to your Nigerian gathering nourishment. It acts the hero when you have maybe a couple companions going by. It's doubtlessly an awesome nibble to make up for lost time with the most recent essence or watch a football coordinate over, with some chilled beverages to wash it down.

Serve your Jollof Rice with Peppered Chicken and watch your family help up over the supper table.
Peppered Chicken is undoubtedly the popping red, fiery response to the essential Grilled Chicken.


  • 1.2kg chicken 
  • 2 tatashe peppers 
  • 1-2 Scotch hat peppers or habanero peppers 
  • 2 onions 
  • 1 cooking spoon vegetable oil 

  • 6 little stock solid shapes 
  • 1 tablespoon thyme 
  • Salt (to taste) 

Notes on the fixings

  • Utilize hard chicken (hen) in light of the fact that the taste is wealthier than that of the delicate chicken (cockerel or chicken). 
  • Tatashe peppers are Nigerian fiery red pointy peppers. Outside Nigeria, utilize Tribelli peppers (Pimentos Tribelli in Spanish). The peppers deliver a popping red juice when mixed making it an incredible other option to our Nigerian Tatashe. The main distinction is that Tribelli peppers are not fiery. Tribelli peppers are sold under various brand names in various nations. 
  • The Scotch cap peppers (elective habanero peppers) is atarodo, ose oyibo or atarugu. Its occupation is to add more nibble to the tatashe. On the off chance that you don't care for hot nourishment, you can utilize just tatashe. I utilize a mix of Tribelli peppers and scotch hood in light of the fact that Tribelli peppers are not hot and on the off chance that you need to utilize just scotch cap peppers for this, the peppered chicken will be excessively zesty and you won't appreciate it regardless of the possibility that you adore fiery sustenance. 
  • The thyme ought to have fine particles. I include the thyme from a shaker that has minor openings so that exclusive the most minor particles go through. 
  • One of the onions is for cooking the chicken while the other is for trimming. Utilize red onions for topping. 

Before you set up the Peppered Chicken 

  • Cut one of the onions into little pieces and cut the other into thin cuts. 
  • Expel the seeds from the tatashe or Tribelli peppers, cut them (and in addition the scotch hat peppers) into little pieces and mix with a hand blender. The mixing ought to be coarse not smooth (see video). Any blender that permits you to pound the pepper without including water ought to do. For a typical blender, add simply enough water to help the cutting edges of your blender move. 
  • Clean the chicken. Cut them into desireable sizes in the event that you purchased entire chicken. Put in a bowl and include the thyme, diced onions and stock 3D squares (smashed). Rub the flavoring and flavors into the chicken with your hands, cover and put in the refrigerator to marinate for no less than 60 minutes. 

Headings for making Peppered Chicken 

  • At the point when the chicken has marinated for 60 minutes, put in a pot, pour some water and begin cooking. I include water since I utilize a weight cooker. In the event that utilizing a typical pot, simply begin cooking and when it begins to bubble, water will leak out from the chicken. 
  • At the point when the chicken is done, take them out and flame broil/cook in the broiler at 180°C (350F) till brilliant everywhere. On the off chance that you are setting up another supper around the same time (say Nigerian Jollof Rice), utilize the chicken stock (water from cooking the chicken), to set it up. On the off chance that you are simply get ready Peppered Chicken to present with a chilled drink, put the chicken stock in your cooler, chicken stock dependably proves to be useful when you are setting up another feast. 
  • Pour the vegetable oil in a go pot and warmth it away. 
  • Include the pepper mix and begin browning on low to medium warmth till all the water becomes scarce. 
  • Include the barbecued/seared peppered chicken and mix extremely well with a spatula till the popping red peppers have covered every last bit of the chicken. Include salt whenever if fundamental. 
  • That is it! 

Present with any Nigerian Rice dish or potentially Salads. You can likewise serve it as a nibble with a chilled drink. Peppered Chicken is an incredible expansion to your gathering nourishment.
