When Americans want to gather around the grill for the party, we call it a barbecue, but in South Africa, they call it a braai. A braai will often feature a variety of braaivleis (grilled foods) and boerewors (a South African spicy sausage), and one of the most common grilled foods is sosaties, or kabobs. This chicken sosaties recipe features a spicy and fruity marinade that showcases some of the unique elements of South African cuisine – the combination of African, Indian, and European flavors. We love these chunks of flavorful grilled chicken by themselves, but you can also add vegetables like peppers, onions, or zucchini to the kabobs if you like. Just give them a quick toss in the marinade before adding them to skewers. What do you think of this recipe? Have you ever tried South African food before? Let us know in the comments below!
