Chicken and Tomato Bredie

From My Kitchen To Yours – keeping our heritage alive since 2011!

8-10 pieces of chicken
1 Tbsp cooking oil
500g red ripe tomatoes, washed, chopped or liquidised and / tin of chopped tomatoes or use both
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt or to taste
2 green chillies, chopped or more
2 tsp tomato paste
3 potatoes, peeled and sliced into quarters
2 tablespoons sugar or to taste

Heat the oil in a big, heavy-bottomed saucepan, over medium heat.
Sauté the onions in the oil until golden, soft and golden brown.
Add the chicken pieces and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes to brown slightly.
Add the chopped / liquidised tomato, garlic, salt, chillies and tomato paste and simmer a further 5 minutes.
Add the potatoes and cook until the potatoes are soft.
Add the sugar last and cook a further 5 minutes.
Serve warm with steamed / boiled white rice.

Cooks Tip:
DO NOT add the sugar until the potatoes are completely soft as the sugar will prevent the potatoes from softening.
Prepare the Tomato Bredie a day in advance and leave in the refrigerator. Vegetable bredie’s flavour enhances if it eaten the next day. Reheat and serve with boiled rice.

Buy tomatoes when in season and it’s slightly cheaper. Cut and liquidise, divide into portions, pour into freezer friendly ziplock bags or containers and freeze until needed.

Use tin tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes
