Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to experiment with food from other cultures. I enjoy Boerewors. They are the South African version of Mutura. They are quite tasty and very versatile, you can grill or bake in an oven, gill on a bbq, stew etc. Kenchic offers a whole new twist on Borewores. Not beef or pork but Chicken. How amazing is that?

The last time I gave you guys a boerewors recipe, it was pork. The recipe is here.  The recipe was so popular everyone who made it loved it. So what I decided to do was improve on it. The sweet basil coconut sauce makes this dish a sure winner. The texture of the potatoes and mushrooms add quite a unique balance to the dish. I love basil. I think it is one of those herbs that Kenyan’s do not use enough of or maybe the just do not know about.


You can have this dish with rice or chapo. I bet you will love it.


Happy Cooking!
