Introduction: Piri Piri | Peri Peri Chicken With Homemade Peri Peri Sauce

Piri Piri | Peri Peri Sauce is a spicy sauce used for seasoning or marination. It is originated from portugal. The sauce is consisting of bell pepper, Red bird eye chilli, paprika, herbs like (oregano, basil), lime juice/vinegar. This seasoning is great for grilling meat or veggies. I prepared peri peri chicken and peri peri potatoes with this marination. Both were delicious. If you are chicken lover, then you must try this marination. It's too yumm. Thanks for visiting :)

Step 1: Ingredients

6 Chicken leg piece, washed, skin removed and slitted

To Grind

1 large Red Bell pepper deseed and chopped

6 to 7 Red bird eye chilli

6 to 7 big Garlic cloves

1/2 cup oil

1 tsp Oregano

1 tbsp Paprika powder

1 tbsp Red chilli powder

1 tsp Ground pepper powder

2 tbsp Lime Juice/Vinegar

Salt to taste

Step 2: Method

Take all the ingredients mentioned under to grind column in a blender and make it to fine smooth paste.

Now take the slitted chicken in mixing bowl. Add peri peri sauce into it. mix well and marinade for 4 hours or overnight.

After the marination time, preheat oven to 350 F on bake mode. Line a baking tray with foil and place the wire rack on it. (I am out of aluminium foil sheet, so i dint use it. Its easy for cleaning the tray)

Place the marinated chicken on the rack and keep the tray on center rack. bake the chicken for 15 minutes.

Now invert the chicken and bake again for another 15 minutes.

Take the baking tray out from the oven, transfer the chicken from rack to baking tray, then apply some sauce on all the chicken pieces. Bake for another another 25 to 30 minutes.

Spicy, Juicy Peri Peri chicken is ready now..

Step 3: For Extra Sauce

If u have extra sauce, I have two options for you :)

1. you can store it in air tight container at refrigerator upto a week or 10 days.

2. Take the extra sauce in a pan and cook over medium heat till oil separates from it. You can serve this sauce with the chicken.

Looks delicious! However, you have honey in the ingredients photo. Did you omit that from the recipe for any reason, or is the photo incorrect?

We will be trying this for sure.

A mix of Peru peri chicken and regular roasted potatoes would be an awesome combination I suppose!

Is there a substitute for the red bird eye chili? I've never seen it in any of the stores I regularly visit.

author
Bhawya (author)patmiller202016-03-24

You can substitute with regular red dry chilli

Sorry lots of typos due my big fingers on an iphone on my previous comment

Bhawya (author)rajmchavda2016-03-22

No prob.. Thanks

rajmchavda (author)2016-03-22

Can you post photos of what your chicken turned out because the photos are professional and the recipe does not call for food coloring and typical indian chiken i mkae never has that color without food coloring.

author
Bhawya (author)rajmchavda2016-03-22

hi.. I edited the pic using photoshop.. it was taken in dull light.. so I increased the brightness an sharpened the image. Thanks ..

Hi! Bhawya,

Love this! Looks so good. If I used Chicken pieces,will it be to spicy? I want to serve with rice like butter chicken.

author

If it is too hot for you you could dilute with some plain yogurt. that will cut some of the heat and add creaminess.

author

Thank you! I will try it like your recipe first ,then will see. We love spice so I think it will be fine. Keep up the good work. Jewels

author
Bhawya (author)The Juliart2016-03-21

Hi Juliart, Its little more spicy.. You can adjust quantity of red chilli according to your taste. It would b great and yummy with butter chicken. Thanks.
