Nigerian Beef & Chicken Stew is usually a tricky Nigerian recipe to prepare. If it is not sour or tasteless, it is burnt or too oily. Not to worry, just follow the steps below and you will learn how to make the best Nigerian Beef & Chicken Stew.


• Tomato Stew
• Whole Chicken (hen)
• Beef
• Onions
• Habanero Pepper & Salt (to taste)
• Stock cubes & Thyme

You should try and match the quantities of ingredients above to the quantity of the tomato stew you want to prepare. As a guide, here are the quantities of ingredients I used for the Beef & Chicken Stew in the video below:
• Fresh Plum Tomatoes – 1.5kg
• Tinned tomato paste: 600g (or watery tinned Tomato Puree: 1.2kg)
• Vegetable Oil: a generous amount (see this video)
• Whole Chicken (hen) – 1.2kg
• Beef: 15 pieces of medium cuts
• Onions: 2-3 medium bulbs
• Habanero Pepper & Salt (to taste)
• Seasoning: 3 large stock cubes & Thyme (2 teaspoons)

• Cooker
• Oven for grilling the chicken and beef
• Deep Pot
• Spatula
• Sieve
• Chopping board
• Blender
• Knives


1. Grind / Blend the chilli pepper and cut the onions into small pieces.
2. Start preparing the tomato stew by following the steps at: How to Prepare Tomato Stew
3. Cut up the chicken and cook with half of the chopped onions, stock cubes and thyme. When the chicken is almost done, add the beef and cook till well done. Then add salt, allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, transfer to a sieve to drain. Grill or fry the chicken and beef. This is optional but it gives them a rich golden look.
4. When you are happy that the tomatoes in your tomato stew are well-fried, pour out the excess oil as I did in the video below.
5. Place the pot of tomato stew back on the stove and add the chicken stock (water from cooking the chicken). There may be tiny pieces of bones at the bottom so be careful not to add those.
6. Add the chilli pepper and the grilled chicken and beef. Stir very well and add salt if necessary. You can also add some water at this point if the stew is too thick.
7. Cover the pot and cook at medium heat till the contents of the pot is well steamed. Stir again and you are done.
8. That’s how to prepare the best Nigerian Beef & Chicken stew.

Use the beef and chicken stew to eat White Rice, Fried Plantain, Boiled Plantain, Fried Yam, Boiled yam and Agidi. Some people even add it to their Egusi Soup!
