Heat the butter and oil in the potjie and brown the chicken a few pieces at a time.
Set aside. Fry the sliced onion, garlic and thyme until softened, then add the baby onions and brown a bit. 
Stir in the flour and remaining ingredients(including the chicken). Make sure the baby corn  is on top.
Cover and simmer gently over the coals for 1 hour until liquid has reduced to a saucy consistency and the veggies and chicken are tender.
Season to taste.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
