This is the Ultimate Nando's Peri Peri Chicken Fakeaway - a truly mouthwatering delicious meal you can create at home.
We all love Nando's right? That flame grilled Nando's Peri Peri chicken with all those amazing sides to choose from. What are your favourites?
Luckily enough we do have Nando's here in Canada and it's one of my favourite places to eat out if we go somewhere where they have one.
But the nearest one to me is over two hours away and so no matter how big my cravings for that yummy Nando's Peri Peri Chicken might be, it doesn't always warrant that long drive, unless I am planning a day shopping trip with my good friend and neighbour of course.
So I figured it was about time I made my own Nando's Peri Peri Chicken Fakeaway, that I could make at home and save on some money and this is truly amazing.
The first part of this delicious Nando's Peri Peri Chicken is the flavour and for that, I make my own paste, which is fresh and just perfect. Fresh chilli, garlic, herbs, along with a blend of spices such as paprika, cumin and of course lastly that fresh citrus flavour of lemon juice and zest.
To make the paste for this Nando's Peri Peri Chicken you will need either a:
I have a granite one like this Andrew James Traditional Mortar and Pestle. I love it for making marinades for meats, or pastes for curries etc, as you start grinding all those spices, herbs etc, the aroma that comes out is enough to leave you salivating for dinner, before you even get starting cooking. There is something rather therapeutic about grinding all the spices too. Great for relieving some stress.
To get that lovely flame grilled effect to the chicken, I used my Staub Cast Iron Grill Pan. Which is just perfect for dishes like this Nando's Peri Peri Chicken. I recommend marinating the chicken in the paste for a few hours though first, just so that it fully takes on those flavours.
If you have a barbecue planned one sunny hot weekend, then this would also be perfectly cooked on the barbecue, but for cooking indoors, cast iron cookware is the best, as it will give a lovely colour to the meat.
Nando's Peri Peri Chicken wouldn't be complete without some roasted corn on the cob and this pan is perfect for both. I just cook the corn in water, then season and spray with cooking oil spray before putting on the cast iron pan with the chicken to finish off. So yummy!!
What can I add to this Nando's Peri Peri Chicken to complete my Fakeaway Night?
For some speed foods, it got to be a fresh mixed house salad, or tomatoes, greens, cucumber and onion. You could also make up some of this delicious Creamy Coleslaw.
Lastly, you definitely want some grilled Halloumi Cheese. Because why not??
