Piri Piri Chicken 😋

This is basically a delicious South African chicken recipe with tender chicken breasts that simmer in a spiced lemon and onion sauce. There are so many great grilled chicken recipes, but after trying some Portuguese inspired recipes, it was time for me to take a look at one of my favorite recipes for South African chicken. This is a South African Piri Piris chicken that simmers tender chicken breasts in an aromatic, spicy lemon-onion-seasoning sauce with a hint of salt and pepper. Sources: 7, 9, 12

Although there are plenty of variations, the common elements of most of these recipes are the spicy lemon – onion sauce, spicy chicken breasts and a hint of salt and pepper. The spicy spiciness is a great addition to the sauce, balancing the sweet and savory flavors of lemon and onion in this South African Piri Piris chicken recipe. This is based on the African Bird’s Eye Chili, which is a spicy combination of chicken, lemon, onion, salt, pepper, garlic, black pepper and spices. Sources: 0, 3

For the sauce, mix the chillies with garlic, salt, paprika and herbs (think peri-peris, the sauce seasoning). After grilling, put the onions and peppers, the lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic powder, black pepper and salt into a food processor and puree until smooth. The chilli pepper is then mixed with olive oil and lemon vinegar to form a seasoning, and then add the olives, oil and lemons and vinegar for the preparation of the sauces with a pinch of salt.

Continue to cook the chicken until it is through and all the liquid is absorbed and the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes until it is almost done. Cook for 10-15 minutes, covering and covering the pan, until the sauces are thickened and liquid is absorbed. Sources: 9, 14

This grilled chicken is marinated in a spicy chili pirate sauce and simply baked with sauce at the end. Some people may call this a recipe, but keep the raw, fresh garlic, or you will get a burnt garlic with a bitter taste. If the sauce contains garlic, add it when the chicken is almost ready, and spoon over the meat so that it swells when cooked. Sources: 5, 7, 8, 10

This recipe is for those who are in a hurry and want to try 30 minutes of piri piri chicken and be in a hurry. The traditional Portuguese chicken, also called “PiriPiri,” is made with a mixture of two ingredients: Pira Piro paprika (originally from South Africa) and Piru Piris (imported from spice ships). This “Pirio” chicken recipe is similar to the dish you find at Nando’s. Note: This is often written in Portuguese “piri piri” and not in the Portuguese original for “ppeffer,” as it is written in English. Sources: 4, 10, 11, 12

Piri piri means simply “pepper” in Swahili, and the sauce was once given its new name in East Africa. Pira Piro peppers, the main ingredient of the “pirate” sauce, originally came to America, as did the chillies. Sources: 2

The fiery red sauce made with pirapiro peppers, garlic, onions, cumin, salt and black pepper really gets the chicken’s flavour going. Sources: 8

With a few more ingredients, it is easy to make a quick combination of herbs and spices that makes a really tasty grating for this chicken. Seal Phipps marinated her chicken overnight in Piri Piris, Mendes left the chicken for two hours, Stein only sloshed the sauce when the meat was all off the cooker, Kiros added chicken in the final minutes of cooking and the other half of the sauce was reserved for stapling. This PiriPiri chicken recipe also makes some of this sauce, so you can keep it in the fridge and use it as a marinade for other dishes. Sources: 1, 3, 14

Nando’s offers its sauce in a variety of flavours, from sweet and sour to savoury and spicy. The good news is that you can do it however you like by adding it to your recipe to control the heat level easily. Sources: 0

If you like it spicy, try a dry new edition, Vinho Verde is the best, as well as a spicy red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay or, if you like me, a VinHO Verdes. Sources: 3

If you like it on the spicy side, try a dry new edition, Sauvignon Blanc seems to be a good wine, but you can also add a spicy red wine like Cabernet Blanc or Chardonnay or even a wine of your choice. Piri Piri is particularly aromatic when the dried fruits I bought are something to linger on, so if you’re like me, a SauVignons Blanc is the best. Sources: 3, 14

First fry the chicken pieces in olive oil with garlic and thyme and cook until the sauce thickens. I think it’s important to use the bone chicken, but the chicken piri can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small to large pieces. Then pour a dollop of the spicy red wine and a pinch of salt and pepper over the prepared Pirasauce. Sources: 1, 9, 12
