Piri Piri Chicken and Jacket Potato

Updated: Aug 21, 2021



Tonight was one of those feeling tired but don’t know what to cook nights. Even I have a brain block once in a while. Eventually, I decided to make piri-piri chicken with some piri-piri seasoning, red chopped chilli paste, garlic paste and some honey. I even got to make my own Peri-Peri sauce as well. To make the jacket potato, I put them in the microwave for 6 minutes on one side and then another 7 on the other side. Then pop in the oven to brown them at 180 degrees until the chicken is cooked. I also made a wild leaf salad to go with this simple yet delicious meal.
