Chicken and Apricot Potjie Recipe [Quick ‘n Dirty]

Here’s a quick turnaround, no nonsense potjie recipe containing chicken and apricot.

This was whipped together in under 2 hours by co-conspirator, Darren Ogden, alongside the river in beautiful Tyolumnqa, Eastern Cape. Google “Tyolumnqa”. If you can spell it. We’re not even sure we can. It really is the most tranquil out-of-the-way relaxing place to experience. Perfect potjie ground.

Chicken and Apricot Potjie

  • 1.5 kg chicken off the bone 
  • 500 ml cream 
  • 2 table spoons apricot jam 
  • 2 handfuls mange trout (those funny flat bean things) 
  • 1 handful mini corn 
  • 1 punnet mushrooms 
  • 1 handful coriander 
  • Garlic to taste 
  • Ginger to taste 
  • Lots of curry powder 
  • Fresh chillies to taste

Ready? Brown the chicken in a bit of oil, chuck everything else in (mushrooms last), quick stir, lid on, leave for 2 hours. Done and dusted!
