    Thanks for these easy to follow yet tasty recipes.

    If I want to make piri piri chicken, do I replace the tandoori masala with the piri piri powder?

    To make piri piri chicken, you only need 3-4 ingredients: chicken, pepper, olive oil and piri piri powder. The piri piri powder contain most of the spices such as paprika, oregano, dried garlic, chillies and salt. Mix the piri piri powder with olive oil and smear all over the chicken and either grill on each side or bake in oven wrapped in foil to preserve moisture. Try to baste with oil once or twice during cooking process to prevent the chicken drying out 🙂
