Piri Piri Chicken - YUM!

We spent five days in Portugal and I had Piri Piri chicken three times.  It's seriously scrumptious and very easy to make.  I've attached a recipe below that looks pretty close to what I was eating, but I managed to buy some packs of Piri Piri powder at the supermarket in Vilamoura, so see if you can find some in your local supermarket.

My only important note would be to make sure that your chicken is properly cooked, all the way through.  A lot of the recipes say that you should cook it quickly on the BBQ and I think maybe you should start it in the oven first, and finish it on the BBQ,  just to make sure you're eating it fully cooked.  After having a few bouts of food poisoning, I don't think you should ever take the risk.

Anyway, here's a good looking recipe, so let me know if you make it and how it turns out -

Of course, if you don't want to go to all the faff of cooking it yourself, head on down to your local Nando's and get someone else to do all the work!
