Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a potjie pot and fry the chicken, a few pieces at a time, until golden brown. Add the onion and fry for a few minutes. Add the potatoes in a layer on top of the chicken. Add the Rhodes Mixed Vegetables in a layer on top of the potatoes. Pour over the beer or chicken stock and the prepared brown onion soup.

Cooking Tip

Only top up the potjie pot with extra chicken stock or water if the potjie gets very dry. This meal can be cooked on a stove top.
