  3. Heat a griddle pan and while that’s heating, remove the chicken pieces from the marinade.
  4. Place the chicken pieces on the hot griddle and cook for about 10-15 minutes, turning once. Ensure the chicken is cooked through.

To make your suya spice, add a cup of roasted nuts and chilli powder (to taste) to a grinder and grind to a fine powder. Store in a jar and enjoy on grilled meats and veg!
