"This is the best peri peri chicken I have ever tried. It is even better than the original chicken from Nando’s." Vicky on Pinterest
– Whole chicken – Olive oil – Lemon – Peri Peri sauce – Salt – Pepper
With just 10 minutes of prep and a few simple ingredients, you can make my easy Peri Peri Chicken recipe right in the comfort of your own kitchen!
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Oil a large roasting pan and place the lemon wedges on the bottom.
Add chicken to the pan with the lemon wedges, and brush both sides of each piece of chicken with oil.
Setting aside some of your peri peri sauce for later, brush both sides of each piece of chicken liberally with the remaining sauce using a basting brush. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Make sure your chicken is facing skin-side up. Roast for 30 minutes at 400°F.
Brush chicken with the peri peri sauce you set aside earlier. Roast another 15-20 minutes or so until the chicken reaches 165°F internally using a meat thermometer.
Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with rice, fries, and/or slaw and some extra sauce!
