Coriander, Cumin and Orange Glazed Chicken

There wasn’t a single shred of chicken left.
I’m surprised no serious injuries were caused over the last scraps!


1.6kg whole chicken

juice of 2 oranges
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/ 2 tsp salt
30ml veg oil

juice of 2 oranges
1/4 tsp English mustard powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried coriander
1/4 cup white sugar



  • Mix the marinade ingredients together.
  • Place chicken and marinade mix in a sealable container overnight. Shake it up every now and again
  • Add the glaze ingredients into a pot and heat until it begins to boil. You can make the glaze beforehand and store in the fridge.
  • Allow the glaze mixture to simmer until it has reduced and turned a golden brown. Approx 20 min

Pack 12 briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters into the bottom section and get that going.

  • When the briquettes are ready, place the marinated chicken onto the braai grid (breast side up) and cover with your Dome Lid.
  • Keep both doors of your PotjieKing closed and the vents on the dome lid closed while cooking.
  • Turn after 45 min.
  • After 35 minutes coat the chicken in the glaze and allow to cook for a further 10 min,
  • Remove and allow to rest for 10 min.
  • Carve and serve!
