:35 Minutes + Time to marinate(12hrs)

The peri peri sauce is traditionally made with a fiery pepper from Africa called 'pili'. Chicken breasts marinated in a home made version of this sauce and baked perfect.


  • 2 fresh hot chile peppers (jalapeno), chopped (we used canned jalapenos)

    2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice

    4-5 Tbsp olive oil or more to achieve desired consistency

    2 cayenne pepper or red pepper (adjust quantity to taste), roasted and de seeded

    1 red bell pepper, roasted and de seeded

    2 tsp garlic crushed

    1 Tbsp paprika

    2 tsp salt

    1 Tbsp dried oregano or to taste

    1/2 kg chicken breast, cut in medium size


Combine all ingredients (apart from the chicken) in a blender and process to a smooth paste. Taste and adjust with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika.

Marinate chicken breast and refrigerate for at least 12 hours to allow flavors to develop.

Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes at 250 degrees and serve hot.
