CHICKEN POTJIE

      INGREDIENTS

    • 1 kg chicken thighs.
    • 50 ml cooking oil (or olive oil)
    • 2 teaspoons salt
    • 4 bay leaves
    • grinding of black pepper corns
    • pinch of dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon allspice
    • 50 ml chutney
    • 500 gram carrots, peeled and sliced
    • 6 large potatoes, peeled and sliced
    • 500 gram whole button mushrooms
    • 125 ml boiling water
    • 1 chicken stock cubes


      PREPARING THE POTJIE

    1. Clean the inside of the Potjie thoroughly
    2. Rub the inside with a couple of gloves of garlic (if you don't like garlic don't do it then!)
    3. Make a fire of charcoal, briquettes or wood (a gas fire may be used but does little for the ambiance!)


      METHOD

    • Heat the oil in the pot
    • Sprinkle the thighs with salt
    • Fry the chicken, a few pieces at a time, until nice and brown
    • Add the spices, herbs and chutney
    • Layer first the potatoes and then the carrots on top of the meat
    • Dissolve the stock cubes in boiling water and add to the potjie
    • Replace the lid and simmer slowly for approximately 1 hour
    • After 1 hour layer the mushrooms on top of the carrots
    • Simmer for another 20-30 minutes
    • Serve with rice
    • Serves 4-6 people

      VARIATION

      If you want to you can add any other vegetables of your choice such as; cabbage, patty pans or corn on the cob. Just make sure that all hard vegetables are near the bottom of the pot on top of the potatoes.

      NOTE

      Be careful when making a Chicken Potjie because the cooking time will be much quicker than with lamb or beef as the meat is softer.

DO NOT STIR THE POTJIE WHILE COOKING!
