Here's what you'll need to make the recipe:

Chicken spice
Onions, red/green pepper/bell pepper (finely chopped)

One fan noted that Tamaryn's recipe is a different take on orange chicken. 

It seems like a weird combination but Tamaryn's followers are eager to give it a try.

"My mouth is watering," former Miss SA contestant Karishma Ramdev commented.

Another Instagram user added: "Never heard of Oros chicken! Interesting. Im going to try it. It looks yummy!"


Cooking With Tamaryn Green

The verdict is still out on whether Tamaryn's husband, Ze Nxumalo, enjoyed the meal. But his mother loved the last dish she made. 

Tamaryn made 'Boentjie Kos' for her mother in law, who gave the dish a thumbs up after a taste test. 

"Let’s just start off with saying I’m not teaching anyone to cook. I’m sharing something I love doing, with you. I’m making this for my mother in law. Sharing one of my childhood favourites with her. Boentjie kos as the coloured community knows it by, was a staple in my community growing up & I hope my bonus mom loves it as much as I do," Tamaryn wrote.

Of course, some people couldn't resist giving Tamaryn some cooking tips. 

"The curry powder suppose to be added to onions," one follower told her.

Another follower added: "Cooking while wearing white."

A third person added: "Ayi..... it's not make sure cc..... but sending love for effort..... curry powder that has not burned in heat."

The comments didn't stop Tamaryn from heading back into the kitchen. She shared a seafood curry next.

Once again, the masterchefs had some tips to share.

"Next time first cook the potatoes, my darling, so that you can not overcook the seafood. Looks good," one follower commented.

Another added: "Tam I love you but potatoes do not go within a seafood curry!'

But many more people applauded Tamaryn for trying to up her cooking game. 

"I'm not the greatest fan of cooking but hell you are trying and making an effort! Well done! Do you and what, makes you happy! Looks good though," one woman wrote. 

Well said!
