Chicken Light Soup is the soup that you can smell the aroma from afar. It’s also one of the simplest to make and the tastiest soups in Africa. Try my simple chicken light soup and you will love it. It is easy and uses only fresh ingredients.

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


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


-Season chicken with blended ginger, garlic, parsley, and one Maggi cube.
-Allow it to simmer for 30 minutes
– Bring chicken and marinate, add 1/2 cup water to steam.
-Add your salted beef, fresh tomato, onions, and pepper.
-When nicely steamed, add more water to boil for 35 minutes.
-Take out your vegetables, blend, sieve, and drain back into the soup, add salt, cloves and allow to simmer.
