With our outdoorsy lifestyle we lead in summer, there is usually a braai fire involved. If you are well prepared, you can make some fun food. Sophia Lindop provides the answer, it’s on the cover of her latest book, braai & potjie, flavours and traditions. A perfect Christmas stocking stuffer.
Honey & mustard chicken thighs
2 tbsp honey
6 tsp wholegrain mustard
juice of ½ lemon
12 deboned chicken thighs
Soak 24 kebabs sticks in water for an hour.
Mix the honey, mustard and lemon juice in a bowl. Spear the thighs crossways using two sticks per thigh, and place them in a flat dish. Pour the honey and mustard mixture over and allow the chicken to marinate for an hour before cooking on a medium-hot open fire until golden and sticky.
