Peri Peri African Chicken

It’s still grilling season, so we’ve got a great traditional African Chicken recipe to spice up your week or any football party!

Peri Peri African Chicken is a mouth watering spicy marinade recipe that works well with salad and fries. An additional way to serve it is adding it to a pita with salad and garlic Greek yogurt (3/4 cup Greek yogurt and 3 cloves of crushed garlic with finely chopped chives). Just watch out for the wicked garlic breath!


1/4 cup paprika

2 tablespoons hot chili powder

1 cup fresh lemon juice

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

4 bone-in chicken breasts



1. In a large bowl, stir together the paprika, chili powder, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and salt. Rub the chicken with the mixture, place in a dish, and marinate for 3 hours.

2. Preheat a grill for medium heat.

3. Place chicken onto the grill and discard the marinade. Cook for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skin is slightly charred and juices run clear. (Indirect heat on a charcoal grill works well)

Makes 4 servings.
