What exactly is Hard Body Chicken?

Hard Body Chicken, is also known as Umleqwa to most South Africans, it means “Running Chicken”. These chicken are fresh, flavourful, and finger-licking good!

There are also quite a number of English names given to these Chicken, “Traditional Free-Range Chicken, Homegrown Chicken, Indigenous Chicken, Chicken raise at home, and of course – The Running Chicken.”

Umleqwa is not like your typical retail chicken that cooks in 20 minutes. The meat is tough, the skin is thick and totally different, as a result you boil it for 45 minutes to 1 hour. An important thing to remember about cooking indigenous food – less is more. Umleqwa is not just a tasty dish, but it also requires minimal seasoning, such as simply a bit of salt.

 The flavours are deep and the meat is soft and chewy on the bone, it’s very satisfying to know that there are hardly and fats in the meat as well, so it’s a very healthy alternative to normal chicken.
