Piri piri is Swahili for "pepper pepper". Other names include 'pili pili' or 'peri peri'. Variations of the sauce have been around since the 15th century when the Portuguese settlers in Africa came across African bird’s eye chilli and made a marinade combining the chilli with other ingredients.
All across the globe, peri peri chicken is now a well-known and well-adored dish. Last night I decided that I wanted to try out a Mozambican style oven-cooked peri peri dish and it came out absolutely amazingly! We licked our fingers and plates clean. This recipe deserves 5 stars!
