Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 500g chicken pieces
  • 2 Tbsp Mozambican peri peri spice
  • 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • ½ chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ c coconut milk
  • Lemon juice – 2 medium-size lemons, squeezed


Prepare the marinade by mixing the peri peri spice, garlic, onion, olive oil, coconut milk and lemon juice in a bowl. 

Drench the chicken either in a bowl that can be sealed or in Ziplock bags and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. 

Remove the chicken from the bag and remove excess marinade and grill on medium-high heat for approximately 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. 

If cooking the chicken in the oven, arrange the chicken on a single layer or a baking pan and cook for approximately 50 minutes, rotating half way at about 20 minutes. 

In a saucepan, add the remaining peri peri marinate and cook for about 7 minutes. Serve the sauce with the grilled chicken.
