Chicken & Veg Potjie

You can always rely on a Potjie. We just moved house. Boxes everywhere. Chucked what we had in the Potjie and left it to do its thing. The result? Heaven after a long day. Hearty and full of flavour.



30ml vegetable or sunflower oil
4 – 6 deboned chicken breasts
5 large carrots  – 1 grated & 4 cut into chunks
6 med potatoes – 1 grated & 5 cut into chunks
1 green, 1 red & 1 yellow pepper – deseeded & chopped
3 med onions – chopped
1 sachet sticky bbq sauce power
Half head of broccoli – cut into florets
2 chicken stock cubes
200 ml tomato puree
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce.
800ml water
3 tsp sugar
salt & pepper to taste
3 – 6 tsp cornflour





Pack 15 briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters into the bottom section and get that going. Place your potjie pot onto the PotjieKing when the briquettes are ready. I used a no 3 round bottom pot. Close both doors on your PotjieKing when you are ready to cook.

  • Pour the oil into the potjie pot to heat up
  • Fry the onions for a minute or two
  • Place the chicken pieces on top of the fried onions
  • Layer the veg into the potjie pot – carrots, potato, peppers then the broccoli
  • Mix the bbq sauce powder with 250 ml of boiled water.
  • Add the stock cubes, tomato puree, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce into the bbq sauce
  • Once mixed in, slowly add the remaining water
  • Pour the sauce over the veg
  • Close the lid and come back in an hour or so to check the coals and add a couple extra in through the top door of the PotjieKing if necessary.
  • Cook for approx one and a half to two hours.
  • If, like me, you prefer your sauce a little thicker then mix a few teaspoons of cornflour into 50 ml of milk or water and stir that in right at the end. Stir gently while it is thickening.
