Chicken and Noodles Potjie
This delicious Potjie is so filling that it can be served on it’s own. However, if so desired, a lovely tossed salad can be served along-side the Potjie. The Potjie can be served with baked potatoes or on a bed of rice as the pot has a lovely sauce. It’s enough for 4 to 6 people and a size 3 Potjie is recommended.
