Step 1: Season chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and rosemary and olive spice. Heat no.3 potjie up and lubricate with drizzle of olive oil. Add chicken pieces, bacon and garlic and brown. Step 2: When chicken is browned, add onion, tomatoes and apricots and season with thyme, salt and black pepper to taste. Cook for 45 minutes. Step 3: Add baby potatoes and cook for 15 minutes. Step 4: Add cream and mushrooms and cook for 15 minutes. Step 5: Remove potjie from heat, add spinach and rest for 10 minutes.
