Piri Piri Chicken

I buy chicken thighs or legs pretty much every week. I don’t always know what I’ll do with them and I actually like the challenge of making something with whatever is in my fridge or store cupboard. This was one of my earliest recipes and one that always goes down a treat with the whole family. This can be made with legs, Drumsticks or breasts, if using breasts then reduce the cooking time to 25 minutes. Have you got a packet of chicken in your fridge?
