Is your family like mine…obsessed with Nandos Peri Peri Chicken? It’s my husband and kids first choice of meal when we go out for lunches or dinners. “Let’s go to Nandos, I hear them all scream”. I don’t know why chicken and chips (fries) is such a delight but I’ve been forced to find this fakeaway recipe out of necessity.
Not only does this Nando’s copycat taste pretty awesome and pass the Stopa taste bud test, it’s way cheaper than going out. And I’ll let you into a little secret…it’s actually really easy to make! Just throw together some simple spices, smother them over the chicken, marinade and then pop the chicken in the oven to do its stuff. The key here is to plan ahead, make the marinade the day before and let in infused overnight and all day before you cook it. I have tried this recipe and done it straight from Thermomix to oven, but it just doesn’t taste as good if you do it the day before. The wait is worth it. I also prefer to BBQ it than bake in the oven, which is perfect for the summertime.
Serve with chips or French fries and sweetcorn and you’ll be having this fakeaway all the time.
