Peri-Peri Chicken with mushrooms and potato wedges

This here is something wonderfully easy to make but tastes like you've spent ages on it. All you need is a readymade peri-peri sauce. I use Nando's medium peri-peri sauce which you get to buy in most supermarkets.

  1. Chicken thighs and legs - 2
  2. Button mushroom - 100 gm
  3. Potatoes - 2 cut in wedges
  4. Chopped garlic/Garlic paste - 2 tbsp
  5. Paprika powder/Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  6. Peri-Peri sauce 
  7. Dried oregano
  8. Olive oil
  9. Salt

The chicken:
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Make small slits on the chicken before marinating in the peri-peri sauce, paprika, garlic and salt. Leave for half an hour.
  3. Place in a roasting pan and cover with kitchen foil. Poke the foil with a knife a few times to allow steam to escape.
  4. Place the pan in the oven for 45 minutes.
  5. Once done, drain the liquid in the pan to a saucepan. Simmer till reduced to a thick sauce. IF necessary, add corn flour to thicken.
  6. Pour the sauce on the chicken before serving.
  1. Heat 2 tbsps of olive oil in a pan.
  2. Add chopped garlic and saute till fried.
  3. Add the mushrooms and 2 tbsps of peri-peri sauce.
  4. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Cook on medium heat till the mushrooms are done.
  6. Serve.
Potato wedges:
  1. Boil the wedges in salted water till just done so they hold their shape and do not get mashed. 
  2. Drain the wedges.
  3. In a bowl, mix a bit of of olive oil and dried oregano.
  4. Toss the potatoes in the oil and then place in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes till crisp.
  5. Serve with the chicken and mushrooms.

Happy Eating! :)
