Portuguese Chicken


1 chicken (8-10 pieces)
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup oil
3 – 4 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
1 red onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
2 tbsp Panache Portuguese Spice
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp whole cumin seeds or cumin powder
2 tsp salt (to taste)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tspn chicken tikka masala/Aminas Spices chicken dust/tandoori masala
1 green chillies to taste (bear in mind the other spices have red chilli in them already)
1 bunch fresh coriander and stems
Lemon juice
Fresh lime

1. Blend all the ingredients into a smooth marinade. Marinade the chicken in it overnight.


2. Place the chicken and all the saucy marinade into an oven tray, cover with foil and cook on gas mark 4 for 40-45 mins. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and fresh lime juice. Serve with piri piri rice, naans/pitta bread or chapatis.

Note: For a less saucy recipe such as BBQ, chicken steaks or chicken strips etc. simply add less yogurt and instead of adding in the peppers and onions, slice them and serve alongside it.
