Chicken Soup

Heyyyyyy. Did you miss me? (Yeah, right!) I haven’t been feeling well for sometime now. I was walking about like a zombie with a serious headache. As in a 4 day non-stop headache. Thank God for healing though, I’m much stronger today.

To recuperate faster, I made a bowl of chicken soup tonight. I just finished it, and I’m wondering why I didn’t make it sooner (truth be told though, before today, I couldn’t bear the thought of any food).

Chicken Soup

The heat and spiciness of the soup seems to have opened up my sinuses. Even my tummy is thanking me, the soup really warmed my tummy, and immediately after I post this, I’m going to bed. I really should have had this much sooner.

This soup is perfect for people who are ill or recuperating. It’s also the perfect appetiser, especially in the cold harmattan of Abuja.


  • 400g of chicken, chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 4 atarodo (habanero), chopped
  • Small bunch of spring onions, white and green parts chopped separately
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce (1 stock cube)
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil


Place chicken in a pot. Add garlic, cloves, bay leaves, atarodo, soy sauce, salt, white part of spring onions, and 6 cups of water.

Place pot over medium-high heat, and cook for 15 minutes.

Add the carrots, simmer for 5 minutes. Add the green part of the spring onions, simmer for another 2 minutes.

Remove from heat, and add sesame oil.
