Speaking of Amarula :whistle: :whistle:

I just made a really lekker pudding for lunch ......

Used about 8 old croissants ( every time we had a leftover one I popped it in the freezer ) . Defrost them first..
3 eggs - beaten
3 cups milk
1 cup (250ml) cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Amarula

Break croissants up into pieces and put in greased dish. Beat everything else together and pour over - leave to soak through for about half an hour - put a plate on top weighted down with a pot something heavy then bake at 180 for 35 -40 min till its cruchy on top ..... delicious with cream/icecream ( or even a splash more Amarula) ......

Does anyone have a potjie recipe with chicken and tomato, not necessarily a curry though?

I have got the best chicken potjie recipe ever invented and will post it here shortly. Some of the ingredients (besides chicken) are bacon, apricot jam, pickled onions, cream, mushroom soup, brown onion soup and a lot more. (Even my mother in law has her seal of approval on it)

But to get to your request, almost every potjie can be made with tomatoes. If you want it to have a distinctive tomato flavour, then you have to add something like tomato paste, puree etc in copious quantities.

So here it is. For a number 2 pot,

6 chicken thighs
barbecue spice to taste
250 g rindless bacon
4 medium onions, chopped
60ml fine apricot jam
100ml water
15 ml Worcester sauce
12 whole button onions peeled
10 whole baby potatoes peeled
750ml frozen mixed vegetables
300g sliced mushrooms
flavour enhancer (like Aromat)
1 packet oxtail soup powder
1 packet white onion soup powder
500ml fresh cream or 250ml cream and 250ml milk

Sprinkle the chicken with barbeque spices
Heat the pot and fry the bacon for 5 minutes
Add the onions and apricot jam and fry until onions are tender
Add the chicken, water and Worcester sauce
Cover and simmer for 15 minutes
Add onions and potatoes and simmer for a further 10 minutes
Add vegetables and mushrooms and sprinkle with flavour enhancer
Simmer for 30 minutes
Mix soup powders and cream and simmer for another 30 minutes

A good white wine goes off well with recipe. The ingredients are more or less what is required. One can add less of this and more of that, according to taste.
