Chicken Soup With Stock fish and Smoked fish

A serving of Nigerian  chicken soup
Nigerian chicken soup is best cooked with lots of peppers. It is fun when
you eat it and see the sweat dripping from your fore head on a cold day. I served this like a meal but enjoyed mine with boiled rice.  I don't know why, but I seem to enjoy my boiled rice more with soups than with tomato stew. When I eat rice with tomato stew, I can't take as much as I do when I eat with other soups.  If I want to serve this soup with any swallow ( amalaeba, pounded yam, starch etc), I will add
a little pounded yam in there to thicken it enough for swallow. Drinking the soup with a dessert spoon is so much fun.

Nigerian chicken soup with stock fish
A Nigerian chicken soup can be served with boiled rice, spaghetti, macaroni or swallow. It tastes so great. I like it with much pepper but couldn't add more here cos of the kids. It is best enjoyed hot. Enjoy your chicken and fish with your fingers or a fork and then drink your soup with a spoon.
It can also be served as a dessert if you like it that way.
Enjoy!

    2. Dear Sykes, you don't know what this report has just done for me. Thank you so much for sharing. I feel so good reading that you and hubby enjoyed the meal. I love this and other white soups served with boiled rice.
      Sometimes rice with tomato stew becomes boring for me.
      Thanks, love to Hubby.
