Peri-Peri Chicken

This is a lot better grilled, over coals if you can. But I don’t currently own a grill and it is freezing outside in all cases. So I oven baked the chicken. Next time I need to up the heat a bit so the skin gets crispy.

I buy the chicken at the butcher’s so I can ask them to break it into parts for me (2 breasts, 2 wings, 2 thigh, 2 legs). You can make this with any chicken from the store too, off course.

Ingredients :
1 small chicken, broken into 8 parts.
Peri-Peri Marinade


1. Make the marinade according to the recipe here (lemon missing from my picture) :

2. Put the chicken parts and the marinade in a large ziplock bag and put in the fridge overnight.

3. Heat the oven to 375F. Lay the chicken on a cookie sheet and cook for 25 minutes.

All done! so extra recipe for the side salad.

Ingredients :
1/2 Cucumber
1 tomato, sliced
2 celery sticks, chopped
About equal quantities of olive oil and balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper


1. Shake together the oil and vinegar in a sealed container to create an emulsion.

2. Mix all the vegetables together.

3. Spoon dressing over salad, add salt and pepper.
