Step 11: Recipe 2: Chicken and Sherry Potjie

1 kg chicken portions
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 large onions
300 g button mushrooms
300 g frozen peas
8 large carrots, sliced
Black pepper
1 bay leaf
125 ml water or more
125 ml dry sherry
250 ml sour cream

Heat the potjie up. Chop the onions and fry them in butter and oil in the "potjie" then add the chicken and fry it until brown. Turn down the heat. From now on do not stir anymore. Layer with mushrooms, peas and sliced carrots. Add seasoning, add the bay leaf in the middle and a half a cup of water. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour, by which time the food will have a good sauce. Now add the sherry and sour cream, but do not stir, and simmer for another 30 minutes. Serve with bread to soak up the sauce.

Note: It serves 5 to 6 people in a number 3 "potjie" and takes about 90 minutes
