Zola Nene is back with a third book, this time celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of South Africans through the wonderful tradition of sharing meals!
In Simply Seven Colours, Nene gives praise to the uniquely South African seven-colour (or several-colour) concept with a selection of more simply delicious recipes that tap into the heart of our food nostalgia, with a focus on going back to basics.
The idea of Simply Seven Colours is for you to create your own unique seven-colour menu, by picking recipes from different chapters or ‘colours’. From green, yellow, orange, brown, white, red, a rainbow of colours and, of course, desserts to round off your seven-colour meal, this book is sure to bring you more simply delicious joy.
Chicken & Apricot Sosaties
6 wooden sosatie sticks
1 Tbsp Zola’s Feasts Flavourbomb Spice
½ cup fruit chutney
Fresh chilli, chopped, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 chicken breast fillets, cut into chunks
18 Turkish (soft-dried) dried apricots
Soak the sosatie sticks in water for 10 minutes. This will prevent them from burning when you cook the chicken.
Mix together the Flavourbomb Spice, chutney, fresh chilli, and salt and pepper. Add the chunks of chicken and mix into the marinade until evenly coated.
Skewer the chicken onto the sosatie sticks, alternating with the apricots. You can leave the sosaties to marinate overnight at this stage, if you wish.
Cook the sosaties on the braai over medium coals or in a griddle pan until the chicken is cooked through and golden.
