While Suya is prepared using beef, Chicken Suya is prepared with boneless chicken breast or thighs. But for this Sisi Yemmie's incredible style of making this delicacy, we'll be using chicken breast.

Anyway, let's get to it.


1. Bamboo sticks

2. Chicken breast

3. Suya spices

4. Salt

4. Vegetable oil


1. Soak the bamboo sticks in water for about 30 minutes. This will actually prevent them from burning while grilling the chicken.

2. Slice the chicken breast into tiny bits. Make sure they thinly sliced so that they can absorb the spices and grill easily.

3. Mix two different types of suya spices, salt and vegetable oil in a bowl to form a thick paste.

4. Thread the chicken slices into the sticks and pour the spice mixture on it. Make sure each chicken stick is covered in the suya spice mixture. You can marinate in the fridge for about 20 minutes if you choose to.
