RECIPE | PERI PERI CHICKEN

RECIPE | PERI PERI CHICKEN

Peri Peri Chicken is one of my all time favourite dishes. It's a Portuguese dish that possesses a lot of flavour and spice. Recently I decided to make my own Peri Peri Chicken rather than going out to buy it at a restaurant where they most likely would not use free-range organic chicken. This is something that I try to support where possible as I'm not a fan of animal cruelty and for health reasons. For this and all my recipes, I cook with certified humane chicken from Blue Goose Pure Foods and they can be found at most local grocers now.

Well I hope you guys enjoy this recipe! If you make it, please take a picture of it and tag @christieathome on Instagram and it may be featured. If you're not on Instagram, please share it with your family and friends.
