Peri Peri African Chicken

peri peri chicken

Recipe by: UKNO1CHEF

"This is a great spicy marinade recipe, a traditional African dish, great for BBQ. Nice with salad and fries, but I like adding it to a pita with salad and garlic Greek yogurt (3/4 cup Greek yogurt and 3 cloves of crushed garlic with finely chopped chives). Don't go on a date though, gives you wicked garlic breath!"


1/4 cup paprika                                                 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
2 tablespoons hot chili powder                            1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup fresh lemon juice                                      4 bone-in chicken breast halves
3 cloves garlic, minced

5 m                            15 m                           3 h 20 m

1. In a large bowl, stir together the paprika, chili powder, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and salt. Rub chicken with the mixture, place in a dish, and marinate for 3 hours.

2. Preheat a grill for medium heat.

3. Place chicken onto the grill and discard the marinade. Cook for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skin is slightly charred and juices run clear.
