It might be summer in South Africa, but it is also the rainy season in most parts of the country. It’s cooler, you want to stay indoors and enjoy hearty food that warms you up from the inside. Making a casserole or “bake” is a great way to enjoy this season with the family. The great thing about our Chicken Bake with Chutney Mayo is that your pantry already has all of the ingredients. You won’t need to go out in the rain to do shopping and it’s a mix and bake recipe, so it’s super easy to prepare.
Chicken is always a good option for the whole family as very few people don’t eat it. Your family will love the great, nostalgic, homegrown flavours of our Chicken Bake with Chutney Mayo. You’ve made a chutney and mayo dipping sauce for chips and this time it’s all for your chicken. The meat will be perfectly tender with the rice which has absorbed all the goodness of your mixture and spice. Don’t be afraid to spice thoroughly and don’t add too much salt if your chicken spice already has salt added.
A dish that tastes like home, our Chicken Bake with Chutney Mayo is great for the holidays when your snuggled up when it rains.
