Chicken light Soup


Chicken light soup is Sunday’s delight. It is that soup that you can smell from afar and tell your friends you have to go home.

That soup that will make you not want to send your friends home.

Try my simple chicken light soup and you will love it. It is easy and uses only fresh ingredients and no puree…. (I never said tomatoe puree isn’t good)

I steam the chicken with salted beef because I love salt and it helps to bring out all the flavours without trying too hard or adding too much

1 pound cut chicken
3 fresh whole tomatoes
1 large onion
2 cups water
1 small cube of tolobeef (salted beef)
4 tablespoon fresh or dry pepper
4 fresh cloves (in every market)
Fresh ginger and garlic paste /powder
Fresh chopped parsley (optional)
2 Maggi boullion


1. Marinate chicken with fresh ginger,garlic,parsley and one Maggi cube.
2. Marinate for 30 minutes
3. Bring chicken and marinate, add 1/2 cup water to steam. Add your salted beef, fresh tomatoe,onions and pepper.

4. When nicely steamed, more water to boil for 35 minutes.
5. Take out your vegetables, blend, sieve and drain back into the soup,add your Maggi boullion,cloves and allow to simmer.

Note: you can add plantain or yam into your soup to cook as seen in the picture above.

    Hello dear, great recipe thanks for sharing! Whats a more natural substitute to maggi if someone is opposed to using maggi in their food?

      Hi Annette, that will be salt please. But just add a little more of your favourite spices.
