The sweet, spicy chicken is delicious when tossed through chunky vegetables and roasted in the oven.


¼ cup (60ml) honey

2 Tbsp (30ml) smoked paprika

salt and milled pepper

1 County Fair braai pack

¼ cup (60ml) melted butter


½ pineapple, peeled and cubed

a handful of baby spinach

3-5 radishes, sliced

3-5 limes, sliced

a glug of olive oil

fresh chilli flakes


  • Combine the honey, paprika and chicken. Season.
  • Braai over hot coals for 25-30 minutes, brushing with butter at regular intervals.
  • Combine the salad ingredients in a bowl.
  • Drizzle with oil, season and sprinkle with chilli flakes.
  • Serve the chicken with your pineapple and lime salad, and garnish with fresh herbs.
Cook’s note: Remember that wings and drumsticks cook faster than thighs and breasts. Keep a close eye on those smaller cuts.
