Portuguese Style Piri Piri Chicken

I cant wait to make this, found this recipe on anther site.

I’m Portuguese, so I will let you know if this tastes anything like it’s supposed to.

Hungry already, can’t wait for diner!

4 skinless chicken breast fillets or 8 skinless chick drumsticks

Juice of half a lemon
Juice of half a lime
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons crushed chillies
1teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
ΒΌ cup cider vinegar
Salt and black pepper

Place the chicken, chillies, garlic, lemon juice, paprika, oregano and vinegar in a bowl and mix together. Season with salt and black pepper. Let the chicken marinade in the fridge over night if possible.

To cook the chicken, light the barbeque and wait until the flames have died down and/or the coals have turned white before you start cooking. Place the chicken on the barbeque, turning every now and then to ensure the chicken cooks evenly, this will take about 25-30 minutes.

Once cooked, squeeze the juice of half a lime over the chicken and serve.

Tip: This dish goes well with plain yoghurt

Tip: During the Cruise Phase, why not serve with a green salad or some Tzatziki Dip?
