Peri Peri Chicken Pieces

You may have had peri peri chicken before in Nando’s, but there is really nothing easier than making it yourself at home. It is quick and easy preparation, you just need some good shears to prepare your chicken before roasting.

It is a great recipe for getting everyone around the table for a natter and getting dirty fingered. We tried this recently and it was the first time I had tried to ‘spatchcock’ a chicken. I think it turned out extremely well. It was also very tasty, which is why we have included it here.

We borrowed this recipe from David Farrell at the Old Fat Guy, who is an expert at meat smoking. So please follow this recipe link to his site to find his recipe for Piri Piri spatchcock Chicken and try it out. It is worth it. 

How to spatchcock a chicken

The advantage of spatchcocking the chicken is that all pieces will cook quickly and at the same rate.

Check out also David’s handy video below showing how to spatchcock a chicken:


This was also a first for me.

It was winter here when we tried this and our BBQ is not brilliant, so we cooked it in the oven for about an hour and 20 minutes as we had a slightly bigger chicken (about 1600g). The result was not only really tasty but it filled the three of us up! We shall be trying this on the BBQ in the summer when we get the chance!

You will have to excuse the pictures for this post – I took these myself with my phone 🙂 !
