Nata's Hot Peri Peri Chicken

For all of you that love Nando's chicken this recipe is as close as you will ever get to the real deal. Ive tried loads of other recipes trying to reproduce the flavours and this has got to be the BEST EVER. It's rich in taste and makes the chicken soft and infused with loads of flavour. It is best when marinated 24hours prior to BBQ/Grill or oven cook. If in a hurry at least 2 hours will do.

1 x 1.5kg Chicken with skin, washed  butterflied and scored to get spices into flesh
6 tbl of fresh lemon juice
2 tbls soya sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 tbls paprika
1 whole bulb garlic
1 tbls worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon chinese 5 spice
2 tbls extra virgin oil
2 tbls extra hot Nando's sauce
1/2 teaspoon birds eye chilli powder

Blend all above ingredients and rub into chicken. Cover or seal in a zip lock bag and leave to marinate for at lease 2 -24hours.

Cook on bbq until juice runs clear or in oven at 180 degrees for 1 hour (it may vary depening on your oven. I use a fan assited oven.)

Serve with mixed green salad, potatoe salad and peri peri chips (recipe to follow)
