POKS Smothered Chicken

POKS Smothered Chicken

Our POKS Spices Smothered Chicken recipe features crunchy chicken skin and smothered chicken, on a bed sautéed cremini mushroom seasoned with POKS Green Chili West African Seasoning, for bold West African flavors.

With each bite, you savor a delicate balance of fruity spicy heat juxtaposed with the umami flavors from sautéed mushrooms. For a complete meal, serve it with a side of roasted potatoes or veggies or over a bed of fluffy rice.
