Food Recipe: How to Prepare Porridge Yam With Mashed Chicken


Yam porridge is one of the easiest to make Nigerian foods and I know it's easy to make the popular porridge yam, which you prepare in your home with fresh tomatoes, pepper, salt, and maggi.

But then I did something else, I decided to experiment further with a tuber of yam and I came up with a delicious pot of yam porridge. Well, there is nothing so special about this recipe but this is the first time I am making anything as delicious as this with yam - It’s porridge with mashed chicken, a unique Nigerian meal

So here, I am going to give you the recipe on how to make the mashed chicken Porridge Yam. Here is the exact process to follow to get the image you see above.



The Ingredients for 5 persons include:
A tuber of yam (peel and slice to serve-able sizes).
Half cup of ground crayfish
2 large onions, chopped, seperated
5 atarodo/habanero
8 large tomatoes
Two cube of maggi or knorr.
1 tablespoon of dried cameroon pepper
1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
5cl of palm oil.
Half Kg of Chicken.



So what is so special about this recipe? Nothing, you proceed the usual way. Peel off the bark of the yam, slice to serve-able sizes, wash and set aside. Also slice or grind the tomatoes, fresh pepper, half cup of crayfish and don't forget the onions.

I just parboiled the chicken for about fifteen minutes, allowed to simmer. Then managed to remove the bones and scattered with a spoon (not really mashing). The orobo chicken breed is very soft and can easily get scattered while you are turning the porridge yam with no extra effort.

We are almost done with making porridge yam:



  • Pour about ten cl of palm oil into a cooking pot, allow to heat and bleach a little (about two minutes).
  • Fry the ground tomatoes/pepper for five to ten minutes, add water and transfer the yam. I use palm oil to fry the tomatoes while making porridge yam, add water so that the yam pieces are almost submerged in water (but not completely submarged). Allow to boil then add the chicken, crayfish, a cube of Maggi, salt and other spices. Allow to cook for the next ten to fifteen minutes. 
  • You can pierce with a cooking fork to know if the yam is soft enough for consumption. You can add vegetable, it is very nice for porridge yam also. 
  • Mash some of the yams in the pot, to help thicken the sauce.
  • Cook for another two to five minutes and you just made my favorite porridge yam recipe with mashed chicken wings.
