An easy, tasty meal you can whip up in in a jiffy – you probably already have all these ingredients in your kitchen.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease an ovenproof dish with nonstick food spray.

2. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and place in the prepared dish.

3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and pour the mixture over the chicken pieces.

4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until done and golden brown.

5. Serve with jasmine rice and avocado salad.


• Instead of chakalaka, add chilli sauce, wholegrain mustard, basil pesto or tomato pesto to mayonnaise.

• Avocado salad: Place a few cooked asparagus spears on a platter, top with avocado slices and squeeze lemon juice over. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt on top.
