Portuguese Piri Piri Chicken

The summer holidays are just around the corner, so I’ve decided to share a few holiday inspired recipes with you. Maybe you are staying in self catering accommodation this year? Or perhaps you just want to feel like you are on holiday at home. Today’s recipe is from Portugal 🇵🇹 and it’s the ever popular Piri Piri Chicken. Feel free to adjust the chilli content as a lot of children won’t like it too hot.⠀⠀
