Lots of spices and our favorite hasselback potatoes makes this Peri Peri Chicken dinner an absolute winner…
I love Peri Peri Chicken but I haven’t tried making it at home. When there’s a Peri Peri Chicken craving, we usually go to our favorite restaurant and have it there.
But the past few days have been a lock-down here at home . There’s a tropical storm named Gorio and the weather is crazy. The rain won’t stop and strong winds are blowing. Katamad na katakot mamalengke.
The house smelled of warm spices as the chicken roasted in the oven. My potato-loving Ykaie couldn’t wait for it and peeks through the oven door from time to time saying “Mommy, di pa ba luto?“. She was like that for about 45 minutes and when the timer sent out a ring, signaling the chicken was cooked — I could see a smile and the excitement light up her face.
