Came across this recipe that was an old family favourite from years gone by and thought I'd share it with you.

Easy Ginger Ale Chicken Bake recipe.

8 – 10 chicken portions, thighs, legs and breasts, skin on
1 packet brown Onion Soup
1 packet Mushroom Soup
1litre Ginger Ale

Directions

Heat oven to 130C

Take a large casserole dish that you can place a single layer of chicken pieces to cover the bottom or use more than one dish.

Mix together the soup powders and coat each piece of chicken in a fine coating of the mixture, shake off the excess
and then lay skin side up in the casserole dish.

Pour ¾ of the ginger ale into the casserole dish and pour the remaining into whatever is left of the soup powders,
give it a good stir and then pour over the top of the chicken.

Cover your dish and pop into the oven for 3 hours.
If you don’t have a dish with a lid, cover with foil.

Can be served with rice, veg or a salad.

You can fancy it up a bit by adding a few mushrooms half way through the cooking process
or mix in a tablespoon of apricot jam with the ginger ale and soup for those who like it a little sweeter.

On a side note, for those of you who make beer can roast chicken, try it with Coke or ginger ale for a change.

Serves 4 - 6

Recipe for corn on the cob, if you like it, on the braai coals– you decide the quantities according to your taste

Melted butter
A squirt or two … of sweet chili sauce from the bottle
Chopped fresh chilies (one green and one red is good)
Crushed black pepper corns
Salt
Sugar (optional)
Braai spice for steak and chops

Mix all the above and brush the corn continually with the mixture over the hot coals until the corn is cooked

It is also nice to put over vegetables or potatoes in foil when you want to cook the vegetables on the braai. We just add some crushed garlic and chopped parsley then.

Yet again I am in need of advice from the experts on the Forum and apologies if I have offended anyone by re-enacting an old "chit-chat"!

I have always been a master of the standng braai but only recently have I mastered the Chicken in the potjie and have several very simple very tasty recipes that I use in the bush or at home but now I am branching well out of my comfort zone.

I would like advice on cooking a Venison and Beef potjie, I would like to mix the two different types of meat (which is probably not the done thing) but would like to see if anyone has any recipe ideas?

I have Impala cuts on the bone and I have yet to purchase the beef but will listen to any and all advice.

I have the basics down, ie Onions, Potatoes, Carrots, Butternut. Herbs I'm unsure of and liquids I'm also unsure of. From the research I have done I have noticed that bacon is a good compliment with the venison, but with the beef?

I await the chef's responses with baited breath and knives and forks ready for polishing!

I am not offended that this thread is up again. I am the world worst at Braai :redface: My last stay had to ask for help from the peeps next door as mine was just terrible. Not enough coals etc he said. So will be trying some of these recipes out. Well that is if I can get past all the Amarula ones first :D :wink:

Thinly sliced beef wrapped around bacon slices for beef olives is delicious so I think the bacon, beef and venison flavour - wise, will combine well. The beef will probably be tender sooner than the venison.
Enjoy! :)

Hey Shushin and kite.

So here is the basic idea - I have 500grams of Impala/500g of Kudu and 500g of beef shin. I plan on doing this tomorrow so will take pics and load them if it works but the general recipe I'm going with is a mix match of all recipes I have read and seen.

I am going to do the basics of browning the meat in oil and then taking out and seasoning. Then doing the onions leeks and garlic and bacon till bacon starts crisping up. Then I will add beef stock and a little red wine and a tin of tomato,fresh Bay Leaves, fresh Rosemary and fresh Thyme. Then I will leave to cook for an hour and a half. Then I will add baby potatoes, carrots and pumpkin and brown onion soup mix. Again let cook for an hour to a hour and a half (at least 2 beers duration). Then I will add courgettes, young broccoli, beans and peas and some chutney with abit of Worcester sauce and seasoning as required.

Hopefully this works?

Ay advice would be appreciated.

I am not very sure if this is the right place to post this question :hmz: :hmz: BUT I am looking for some ideas (even recipes) for what to make for breakfast when on holiday in December 2013. I normally make the usual bacon, eggs, tomato, mushroom breakfast (every 3rd morning), the other mornings we have things like oats, muesli, yoghurt and rusks, BUT the LO and SO say that they want other meals for breakfast, I am not too sure if there are many other different things to make, please help :pray: :pray: thank you

I think you are spoiling them! :redface:
Give them a simple boiled egg? :hmz:
How about mince on toast or cheese and tomato toasted sandwiches (done in the frying pan). :slap:
We sometimes cook extra wors or pork sausages on braai the night before and have them for breakfast. :roll:

Thinly sliced pork rashers is also a wenner for a brekkie! We have it one buns with some real butter and I'm a mustard lover...

Also an egg and bacon burger can do (I take a sunnyside up egg, bacon rashers and a bit of grated cheese and then layer as I like on a hamburger bun)

Uhm... I will think of more brekkie recipes this coming weekend.
