    Peri Peri Chicken Feast

    Peri Peri Chicken Feast


    for 4 servings

    1 chicken


    200 mL (1 cup) olive oil

    120 mL (½ cup) white vinegar

    8 bird-eye chillis

    8 cloves garlic

    2 medium onions

    4 teaspoons dried oregano

    4 teaspoons paprika

    2 teaspoons sugar

    4 teaspoons salt

    2 teaspoons pepper

    1 roasted pepper

    1 lemon, juiced


    500 g (1 lb) chip

    ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

    ½ teaspoon chili powder

    ½ teaspoon garlic powder

    ¼ teaspoon white pepper

    1 teaspoon salt


    50 g (2 oz) mayonnaise

    50 g (2 oz) hummus


    1. Remove the chicken’s backbone by using a pair of kitchen scissors. Turn it over and flatten it down to spread the chicken out as much as possible.

    2. Blend together all of the marinade ingredients in a food processor and spread half of it over the chicken.

    3. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.

    4. Roast in the centre of a preheated oven for 60 minutes at 200°C (400°F), or until the thickest part of the thigh is 75°C. Once the chicken is cooked through, allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

    5. Simmer the other half of the marinade for 2-3 minutes to make the Peri Peri sauce.

    6. Use as a dip for your chicken or mix some into mayonnaise or hummus!

    7. To make Peri Peri Chips, just shake some smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder and white pepper into your chips!

    8. Enjoy!
