Method

 
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.
