Grilled Chicken "Piri-Piri"


 Piri-piri  reminds me of summer, grilling on the beach and Portugal.  Here’s my version using the traditional ingredients with the addition of a little sugar as I can’t get away from the sweet hot combo that I love!  This is a great marinade for grilled chicken or fish.  It’s also perfect as a spicy side sauce.   

“Piri-Piri” marinade


Makes about 4 cups

1 cup lemon juice

¾ cup extra virgin olive oil

10 garlic cloves smashed and peeled

3 dried mild chilies

5 dried hot chilies

2 tablespoons oregano

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons paprika

3 teaspoons brown sugar (optional)

2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (optional)


Soak chilies in hot water until soft, about 20 minutes then roughly chop including the seeds.  Heat all ingredients over a low heat in a medium saucepan until just simmering.  Cool and process mixture in the bowl of a food processor until smooth.  Marinate chicken for 24hours in the fridge then grill.
