PERI PERI CHICKEN

NANDOS STYLE PERI PERI CHICKEN

What do mean by Peri Peri ??? I would say ” Explosion of flavors”. This recipe is for all the Nando lovers. Peri-Peri means African Bird”s Eye Chili. I love the spiciness of this Portuguese cuisine after Indian cusine. The flamed grilled chicken salivates your whole mouth, the sauce with lemon, chili, garlic, herbs gives an instant kick to your tongue. The spicyness comes from the use of the bird eye chilies. One can go for a suicidal heat too, just by increasing the number of chilies. God i don’t want to die so soon! I want to relish more and more food.
