Easy Piri Piri Chicken To make a super simple Nando's-style Piri Piri Chicken try this recipe:
Cut a few slices into 8 pieces of chicken (thighs, drumsticks). Add to a large pan of water and gently boil until just cooked. Remove from pan.
Mix up a marinade of:
2-3 Tsp of Piri Piri (adjust to taste)
1/2 Cup of olive oil
1/8 Cup of red wine vinegar
Splash of lemon juice
Some fresh thyme if you have it
Blitz the above.
(If you have time, put the cooked chicken in a bowl, coat with the marinade and when cool place in the fridge overnight to infuse the flavour).
OK, you have choices now. If you can, BBQ the chicken, this'll give you the best result. Otherwise, remove chicken from the fridge, then preheat your oven to 200°C, pour the chicken and marinade out onto a baking tray and cook through until lightly golden. Try serving with chips, corn on the cob and a salad.

Storage Our FoodFresh pots hold plenty of your favourite herbs and spices, have snap shut lids that really help keep ingredients fresh, they stack, you can see contents (keep them in a cupboard so unaffected by light), they are easy to measure from and make great gifts (get in touch, we can make a hamper for you). They're also microwave and dishwasher safe so become useful containers when you've emptied them.
Note that over time the essential oils, aromatics and colour of this spice blend will fade and the flavours change. Keeps for up to 2 years, but better when used sooner. Please keep your pot in a cool, dry location away from sunlight and use by the BB4 date on the label.
