How To Cook Walkie Talkie Pepper soup

a serving of walkie talkie pepper soup
 Walkie Talkie Pepper soup is cooked with the walking and talking parts of birds. In the past,
I left chicken heads and legs with the sellers. These days, I use them for my walkie talkie soup. Walkie talkie is sold by mallams who roast and sell peppered chicken legs stuck in the heads. I like it, but they moved to God knows where.
Seeing peppered walkie talkie looking yummy while hanging  there waiting for buyers is what made me think of making my own walkie talkie at home in pepper soup form. Not many people like chicken heads or legs. The cooked legs help a lot when you need to keep that crying child busy and quiet.

I am a fish person. I don't really like meat, especially beef. Even when I eat meat, I don'tn like eating fleshy parts, this is the best for me because there is no flesh in there. I eat without going near the eyes though.
The chicken legs are stuck in through the open neck, they come out through the mouth. This opens up the mouth and throat making for easy washing.

This soup can be enjoyed with a spoon while our fingers deal with the parts. It can also be served with boiled rice. Very good for those who are bored with the normal rice and tomato stew. It can be served as a side for jollof rice or fried rice, to be enjoyed after eating the rice. It is best enjoyed when cooked in the evening and left to stand till the following day. That way the stock seeps into the chicken parts and make them more tasty. Enjoying this soup as a no carb breakfast can be very good and   yummy.

Like u said Eya,I give my baby chicken leg minus d toes and she chews on it for so long dt we even fight when I want to take it from her. First time of seeing walkie-talkie pepper soup. Well done Eya.

  10. Normally i use chicken legs to keep my kids 3 of them under 7yrs busy 4 like 30 minutes, it helps wen i need a break. Lol

  11. Hahahah! Walkie-talkie! Aunty Eya, you're so funny!

    If I cook this one for my husband, he'll ask me why! He hates anything that is not simple flesh (me too but I manage atimes). He hates skin (kpomo) insides, head, feet, whateva. Just give him flesh! no bone too except chicken which you can't remove the bone except its shredded. So, I'll pass.

  12. Lolz aunty Ojay u've a way of adding swag to anything. Chicken parts like the head,feet and wing are not only for kids,ironically the head is ma mum's favourite,while my younger sis Lindiway prefers the feet.
    Love d way u prepared it,u made it so tempting and inviting.

  13. I love the name of this soup! Lol! It's just a pity my husband and son are not likely to take this. As for me, the last time I ate chicken legs, I was kinda irritated and wondered why I used to love them so much as a kid.
