Piri-piri chicken is actually simply chicken cooked with the piri-piri sauce, which is a sauce that is Portuguese in origin and is so named because it uses the African piri-piri peppers, something akin to our local chilli padi.
Making the piri-piri sauce involves blending the chillis, onions, garlic, lime juice, salt and olive oil.
Finishing up with some paprika, basil and a bit of Worcestershire sauce.
Resulting in a brown muddy slurry
Grilling the chicken on the outside
Throwing red & yellow peppers to grill as well
Put the chicken and peppers into the pot then throw in a bit of thyme for flavour.
Now it goes into the oven for about 10-15 minutes
And there you have, piri-piri chicken!
