Food experts have recently stated what they expect this years top food trends to be. With African food as one of the front runners, I wanted to share this video by Varun Inamdar on behalf of Get Curried. Showing you how to make your very own Peri Peri Chicken.

“Chicken Peri Peri (or Piri Piri) is an African barbeque chicken recipe introduced in Africa by the Portuguese. It derives its name from the Peri Peri sauce.


1 kg Chicken 
100 ml Extra Virgin olive oil
10 – 13 garlic cloves
5 ripe serrano chillies
10- 12 African devil red chillies
3 Bay leaves 
1 tsp smoked paprika 
Sea salt as required
1 lemon juice
3-4 charcoal chunks
1 tbsp oil


The Sauce:-
Take the devil red chillies, serrano chillies, bay leaves, garlic cloves, sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, smoked paprika and lemon juice in a grinder and make a fine paste.

The Marination:-
Cut the chicken into 8 pieces after removing the fat. Add the peri peri sauce to the chicken pieces and mix it properly.

Smoke Infusion:-
Take a few pieces of wood charcoal and place them on the gas burner and heat them till they are red. Take the burning charcoal pieces in a small bowl aand keep the bowl in the bowl of marinated chicken pieces. Pour some olive oil on the charcoals and as soon as they start emitting smoke cover the marination bowl with a lid. Let it smoke for 30 minutes.

The Barbeque:-
Heat a pan on moderate flame. Place the pieces of the marinated chicken in the pan and heat till brown.
Take some fresh parsley leaves and dab them in the marinade. Baste the pieces of chicken with the marinade. Keep turning the pieces of the chicken and make sure they are brown on all sides.

Turn off the flame and Chicken Peri Peri is ready to serve.”
