Chicken is one of the meats that we eat a lot here in Zimbabwe. For some individuals, everything is consumed including the neck, feet and insides. This is one of the ways in which people have their chicken necks; stewed. It’s pretty simple, like chicken stew and beef stew. If you want to try them out in a different way, you can check how I did them here.
