Creamy Chicken Potjie!
1 large onion, thinly sliced into rings
1 large chicken braai-pack +- 1,25 kg
15 ml Italian dried herbs
15 ml ground ginger
5 ml salt
0.5 ml white pepper
125 ml SPAR creamy mayonnaise
275 ml bottle SPAR sparkling apple juice
275 ml bottle SPAR ginger beer
400 g packet SPAR Freshline baby potatoes in herb butter
300 g packet SPAR Freshline Seasonal Veg Selection
1 packet SPAR white onion soup powder, stirred into
250 ml SPAR milk
In a Size 3 potjie, melt the herb butter taken from the potato pack. In this, fry the onion slices then remove them and set aside.
Combine the herbs, ginger, salt, pepper and mayonnaise. Turn the chicken pieces in this; transfer into the potjie and turn the chicken until browned all over.
Pour on both juices and simmer steadily with the lid on, for 1 hour.
Add the onion rings, vegetables, baby potatoes and soup mixed with the milk. Stir, season further to taste, and replace the potjie lid.
Cook over hot coals for an additional 30 minutes until the chicken is falling off the bone and the sauce is bubbling nicely.
