Tsire Chicken Suyas

Tsire Chicken Suyas
Tsire, also known as suya, is a popular street food in Nigeria. Looking a lot like a shish kebab, tsire is often a skewered piece of meat covered in spices and sold in roadside stands. When making at home, one could grill the tsire in warmer months or broil them in your oven when outdoor cooking is not an option. We're using Afrikoz Spices WEST blend for these kebabs.
