Peri Peri Chicken Roast

I am a great fan of Peri Peri Masala, the distinct flavors it brings in. This Peri Peri chicken roast recipe is hearty and satisfying and warms the soul with its deep smoky flavors. Once the masala is ready, there is not much of work to be done.


Traditional Portuguese Chicken, also called Peri Peri Chicken is made with Peri Peri peppers which actually originated in South Africa, and were imported to Portugal from two Portuguese colonies, Angola and Mozambique, on spice ships. But then we are not lucky enough to get the peri peri peppers. That does not stop us from making peri peri masala or a chicken roast. Right?
