Portuguese Peri Peri Marinated Butterflied Whole Chicken Nichols Ethical Free Range - 1.4kg
This is the most succulent chicken you’ll ever cook on a barbeque!
Peri peri (also spelt/pronounced piri piri) is the name of a type of chilli, and also the name of a fiery and tasty sauce made using that chilli.
In Portugal, 'Frango assado com piri-piri' – is iconic. It is a simple mix of chicken cooked over coals basted with the fiery flavour bomb sauce - peri peri. It’s hard to find any food operator in Portugal that doesn’t have it for sale. These chickens are certainly not turned by rotisserie, they are always and without fail turned by hand on a flat BBQ grill.
We are giving you everything you need to make this authentic Portugese classic at home. A beautiful free range chicken marinated in mind blowing peri peri sauce. Nichols Poultry is one of the most trusted and respected meat brands in Tasmania - they give their free range flock (which is never more than a thousand birds) 24 hour access to natural light, natural ventilation and rolling Tasmanian pastures.
If you can't get to the BBQ, you can bake your chicken in the oven and still yield an incredible result.
Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius/fan 170 degrees Celsius/gas
Lay your chicken flat on a lightly oiled baking tray & cover loosely with aluminum foil
Cook for 1 hour
Remove the aluminum foil and allow the chicken to cook for a further 10 minutes. This will ensure the skin is crisp & golden. If you have a temperature probe, it should reach 75 degrees Celsius at the thickest part of the Thigh
Remove the Chicken from the oven and let it rest for a further 10 minutes
Cut Chicken into segments and serve with a generous amount of fresh lemon segments and Peri Peri Sauce
This Chicken will feed 4 people.
