Spicy Suya Wings(Fried Chicken Suya)

IMG_0156 (2)

If you love suya, you would love this recipe. I was supposed to have shared it earlier this week, but I got busy cleaning my kitchen; then I fell ill and slowed down

We like chicken and we enjoy chicken wings, but I wanted something that would taste spectacular, so I thought chicken suya, but how? I already have one recipe here but I wanted something quick with no hassle.

I do not know why I never thought about frying chicken for suya. Well, I am sure some foodies may have thought about it, but it never really occurred to me to do it and when I did, I was pleasantly happy. The crunchiness of the chicken with the peppers and the smokiness of the suya spice was epic. Restaurants in Nigeria need to start making suya like this o! 🙂 shuo!

Although this is fried, you could grill or bake it in the oven and it would still be amazing. By the time, I did a double take, the chicken was gone. I did not even worry because I really wanted my ajebutters to enjoy it.

Is this recipe  staple? Absolutely! Make it a staple in your kitchen too
