The word piri piri originates in Mozambique, it means fiery hot chilli peppers! In Kampala we used to call these pili pili ho ho. My mouth is twinging just at the thought of these.
This recipe was prepared by Joanne, my sister-in-law in Toronto.
1 large red pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic
2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1/4 cup white vinegar
2tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp salt.
4 Chicken breasts or pieces from one chicken
Mix all the ingredients above in a food processor to make a smooth paste.
Marinade your chicken over night or at least 1 hour.
The more time you marinade the better.
Make sure the meat is room temperature before you start to BBQ.
Heat BBQ to a very high temperature.
Sear the chicken on both sides then reduce heat to medium-high until chicken is cooked.
