Nigerian Chicken Pepper Soup | Nigerian Restaurant Special | Flo Chinyere

Do you want a festive something that is not
rice? Then let’s prepare Nigerian Chicken Pepper
Soup. Chicken Pepper Soup is the boujee sibling
to Nigerian assorted meat peppersoup so this
is usually the one you should be serving during
the festive season unless you are sure your guests prefer assorted beef peppersoup. Here are the ingredients you will need. Ehu, that’s calabash nutmeg. The only seasoning you need for the classic
pepper soup taste. This is not the same as ordinary nutmeg at
all at all. This is what it looks like up close. This is the peeled one. And this is the ground one. Just grind the peeled one with a spice grinder and you are good to go. Then you need the chicken. For the tastiest chicken peppersoup, I am using hard chicken that is hen or old
layers in Nigeria. Rooster or cockerel that’s the male chicken
is tasteless for real. You can also see that I cut it into tiny pieces. You don’t want your guest to be fighting with the pieces of chicken or worse resort to using
their hands while eating the pepper soup. So tell the butcher to cut the chicken into
single bite pieces or the smallest size possible. Seasoning cubes or buillion cubes chicken
flavour. You need peppers, as much as you like. We don’t like hot spicy pepper in this house. So I’m using one habanero pepper. This habanero pepper is sooo hot. And then, the sweet pepper to add more colour. If you’ll be adding a lot of habanero peppers, you don’t need sweet pepper because you’ll
have enough red colour in there. You need red onion. For vegetable I’ll use parsley because I do
not have scent leaves that’s nchuanwu, efirin. If you are in Nigeria, use scent leaves. Outside Nigeria, no other vegetable comes
close to scent leaves. Not basil, not mint leaves, especially not
mint leaves. Mint leaves will ruin the taste of the pepper
soup for anybody that has authentic Nigerian tastebuds. I’m telling you now oo! You need thyme and salt. Add the spices and seasonings to the well
cleaned chicken. Yes, you need to rinse the chicken very well
in plenty of water because chicken cut this small will definitely
contain lots of tiny bones. So make sure you rinse all the bones off. I stir the chicken without adding water. I keep doing that till the chicken turns pale. Then add the chunks of onion, our usual style. My YouTube family members, those who follow
this channel bumper to bumper please tell our other family
members why we are using chunks of onion instead of
chopped onion. I want to see the first person that will answer
this in the comments! This is the quantity of sweet peppers I’ll I will be adding to the habanero pepper. You don’t need a lot because we are not cooking
stew, this is pepper soup! For pepper soups, I prefer chopping my peppers to grinding or pounding them. Pick the parsley … You can add as much as
you want but usually, you don’t need a lot because you don’t want
the leaves to overpower the rest of the ingredients. Again, this is pepper soup not soup for swallow. Meanwhile, I’m boiling rice over here. That’s what we’ll use to enjoy this pepper
soup. You can also serve it with Agidi but how I like my peppersoup combos are chicken peppersoup with boiled white rice … And Assorted beef pepper soup with Agidi. Keep checking the chicken and top up the water
when necessary till it’s well cooked but not too soft. When done, remove the chunks of onion … I always make sure the liquid is at the same
level as the meat. Add the pepper … The leaves … And click the like button! Have you liked this video yet? Have you? Have you? You don’t like pepper soup? Cook for at most one minute. Add salt if necessary. And serve the pepper soup to your guests.

    Am here first

  2. Tasty City says:

    Yeah I'm early today, Leeme keep watching

  3. Angelina Rose says:

    I think that you add the onion like that because of the flavour that you will get of it and not in little pieces because not everyone likes little soft pieces of onion in their soups or broth and to add the onion like that how you did it makes it a lot easier to take it out of the soup. It's just a guess aunty i'm not a African but i think that every African does it like that and likes it like that.But have a very nice and wonderful day aunty. ❤️❤️❤️

  10. Chibuike Ulasi says:

    Ok Flo I am on my way to get my own plate. That chicken pepper soup looks yummy and delicious. I believe you all don't like seeing onions in your food so you prefer to use the chunks so it can infuse it's flavor in the food then you discard the onions. Chai that pepper soup is shouting "Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike! Chibuike!" Thank you so much for sharing.

    If I DIE FOR the pepper soup, how I go come chop am nah?🤣 Whenever I sliced onions, I noticed that my pepper soup becomes thicker and full of particles after awhile. Chunks of onions which would be removed afterwards makes it look lighter & clean. Don't know how to explain it joor🤣

  63. Lizzy Opara - Nadi says:

    My lovely Chef Flo and this is what I call real authentic chicken pepper soup and looks so delicious, inviting and know will taste so great too. I know why you put in the chunks of onions as to give it it's onion flavour without adding pieces of onion and not chew into them in the soup as it is better that way. Your guest certainly was enjoying it with her malt drink too. Thanks for showing us the recipe and stay blessed too.

  64. Chiugoo Kings says:

    Have you subscribed? Have you?

  75. sojagul29st says:

    You are softening the onion b4 grinding it @ Flo Chinyere😁. I love you. And as u stated in other videos that Africans are hating on you. Dont worry and feel well about that. The reason they are doing this thing is that you are doing very well by others and teaching the lost Africans or in other words the African Americans the ways of our people and a lot of Africans' (BORN"in Africa) do not feel we have a right to these ways because many of them do not believe us to be their brothers n sisters. I thank God for you and I thank you!!! You are a very good teacher. I have been cooking these foods for a lot of years Very wrong now I have been learning properly from you. I still have problem doing fish properly. I will look forward to hearing how hot the grease should be when frying or oven temp when baking fish properly crispy. Thank You. Am Sunshine. Oh yes, and Happy Thanksgiving.

  76. Ozioma Maxwell says:

    I have been waiting for this recipe Anty Flomm, thanks a lot. Is remaining akara Japu (casava akara) that we enjoy with Coconut.😋😋😋

  77. Mom Rivera says:
