Ghanaian Shito Grilled Chicken Recipe

This is a recipe for Ghanaian shito grilled chicken, which I really love.

I grew up in a home Growing up in a home that had a large poultry farm. With that much exposure to chicken, you wouldn’t think that I would love eating it so much. But I do.

I loved how my mum would fry or grill chicken for Christmas or Easter or any other celebration at home. I had the job of slaughtering , cleaning and then getting it oven or oil ready.

Fast forward years later and I was excited to find this recipe for Ghanaian shito grilled chicken by the Nigerian food and lifestyle blogger, Sisi Yemmie. I was wowed because of how much I love chicken. She introduced this Ghanaian Pepper sauce which is great for grilled chicken.

I tried it out and couldn’t resist the taste so I incorporated it into my family recipe (you should too). You can get this in any good department store. This is the one I use in the picture below (and yes, that’s me holding the jar of Shito sauce).
