Nigerian style chicken is sold in ethnic stores (Indian, Asian, and South American) and specialty meat stores with the tag: “Hard Chicken” or “Old chicken”. They are often sold Whole and frozen, you will have to defrost and cut them.
- Nigerian style chicken takes longer to cook, so give the chicken a quick boil prior to use
- We can all agree that Naija style chicken is better fried, but if you are health conscious, try oven frying, you will use about 90% less oil and the chicken will come out crispy.
