  • 8
    chicken drumsticks
  • 30
  • braai spice
  • 10
    olive oil
  • 700
    baby potatoes
  • 1
    lemon, sliced
  • 200
    pitted olives
  • a few sprigs of thyme
  • 30
    olive oil


Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, coat the chicken in flour and spices to taste, then heat the oil and shallow-fry until golden brown. Drain the potatoes and lightly press them with the base of a glass so they burst open slightly.

Spoon all the ingredients into an ovenproof dish, drizzle olive oil over, season to taste with salt and pepper, and bake for 30-40 minutes until aromatic and cooked through. Serve with a green salad.
