Delicious & Succulent Suya Chicken Fillets

The day I prepped my delicious juicy Suya chicken kebabs, I also made another batch with just the chicken fillets. Same seasoning but without making it into kebabs. For these fillets, I pan-grilled them and this also gave them a lovely flavour.

We enjoyed these fillets with some jollof rice and it was equally delicious. This version will work well when cooked over a charcoal barbecue grill. So do save this one for your summer barbecue parties.

I hope you will love it as much as we did.
