Chicken Noodle Potjie or Iron Pot Cooking – Not the best looking kid on the block but sure is tasty! Quick easy and Soo Delish!

A delicious pot so filling that it can be served all on it’s own or with a tossed salad o the side. May be served with baked potatoes or on a bed of rice as this pot has a lovely sauce! It’s enough to serve 4 to 6 people. -  A number 3 pot which is 7.8 liters in capacity is recommended. You could possibly get away with a heavy bottomed 6 – 7 liter pot on a stove top.
