This peri-peri chicken is a low fat, lean flavoured chicken recipe inspired by Portuguese flavours. The recipe makes a chicken which is coated in peri-peri seasoning (rather than a saucy dish) which is perfect for in wraps or salads.
The marinate is made from peppers, garlic and seasoning and there’s no oil needed to cook this chicken (cause the sauce gives enough ‘coating’ for the chicken not to dry out as it begins to cook – before it becomes a seasoning – if that makes sense?!).

You could also serve this chicken with lashings of peri-peri sauce (I love the supermarket Nandos range) and chips! Infact… you could half some baby potatoes and put them in the Actifry to cook at the same time as the chicken for peri-peri chicken and potatoes.
