Today’s lunch is easy and delicious Peri-Peri chicken. Easy because I didn’t have to do that much to create the flavor. The secret lies within my dear friend’s secret Peri Peri concoction made right at her kitchen. The result was a juicy, flavourful, tangy-delicious roasted chicken.

Baked Peri-Peri Chicken using Orlanda's Peri-Peri marinade.
Servings3 people


  • 600 grams chicken (legs or thighs)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ cup Peri Peri Sauce by the Orlanda's
  • 2 tablespoons oil


  • In a bowl, combine garlic, sugar and the Peri-Peri sauce.
  • Season chicken with salt. Place chicken in a large resealable bag. Add the marinade and close. Rub the bag to coat the chicken then refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and transfer to a roasting pan.
  • Rub chicken skin with oil. Add 2 tablespoons of the marinade back to the pan.
  • Baked for 45 minutes at 200c, skin side up. I switch the oven to fan mode (or broil mode) after 20 minutes to make the skin crispier.
  • Baste chicken with drippings from the pan every 15minutes or so. This is optional but if you have the time, please do it!
  • Serve while warm with your favorite carbs and salad. Enjoy!
