Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

Snip off the tips of the wings, string onto sosatie skewers and season with the chicken spices, salt and pepper. Arrange on a baking tray with the lemon wedges and drizzle oil over. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes or until cooked through.

Heat a heavy-bottomed frying pan and dry-grill the mealies until cooked through and golden brown all over. Spoon out and set aside. Add a generous shot of olive oil to the pan and fry the courgettes and carrots until cooked. Stir in the tomatoes and remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
