How To Cook Chicken Soup Gravy


chicken soup gravy served with boiled rice
Chicken soup gravy can be served with rice, macaroni, spaghetti, unripe boiled plantain or just enjoyed as a meal on
its own. It is a very tasty and healthy meal. It tastes better with lots of pepper and just a lil flour. Too much flour can make the soup too thick and uninteresting. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 whole chicken
  • seasoning cubes 2
  • salt
  • onion
  • very well washed bitteleaf, mint leaves (scent leaves) OR uziza
  • ground fresh pepper
  • baking flour 2 spoonfuls
  • water

Boil washed chicken with salt and chopped onions
add seasoning cubes to chicken soup
add very well washed bitter leaf or mint leaves or uziza to chicken soup
bitterleaf and ingredients boil and then simmer. Pot was too small, had to empty contents into a bigger pot to continue cooking
adding flour to chicken soup
add 2 spoons of baking flour to boiling chicken stock
chicken soup gravy boils while flour mixes well with stock
chicken soup simmers and cooks slowly

Chicken pepper soup gravy is best enjoyed HOT.
Enjoy!

    1. Don't worry about bitter leaf, you can use mint leaves (scent leaves). If the poundo or fufu is soft enough, I think you should be able to swallow.
