This easy menu is perfect for a casual weekend dinner — and we’ve included some extra spice to heat things up. Start out with our BBQ chicken with piri piri sauce (a spicy pepper sauce used in African and Portuguese cuisine), classic ‘slaw and sweet fries. Can’t handle the heat? Cool down with a colourful and icy strawberry dessert.

Sides
Sweet and sour coleslaw

What’s a barbecue without a side of tangy ‘slaw on your plate? Made ahead of time, you can pull it out of the fridge when dinner’s ready to serve.

Sweetened strawberries are the perfect addition to any dessert. Made 4 – 6 hours ahead, these freezer pops are the perfect cool-down for this hot meal.
