Portuguese Peri Peri Chicken has been one of my most popular website recipes as it is perfect for those who are wanting to lose a little holiday season weight; it is low carb, gluten free, preservative free, dairy free, sugar free —and with a hint of chilli, it’ll get your metabolism working.

Because it is so easy to make, it also helps you to avoid takeaway.

Thank you to Nae Jackson for this fantastic Peri Peri making video.
Perinaise Tip - Leave 1 Tbsp of marinade in the Thermomix mixer bowl and go on to make my Mayonaise recipe without washing the bowl. Let the Perinaise chill in the fridge while your chicken marinates.
Super Skinny Adaptation: Remove the oil, replacing with 15 g or 0.5 oz water. Use chicken breast.
FODMAP Friendly: Take out garlic and swap the plain oil with garlic-infused olive oil and use the green part of spring onions instead of 1 large onion.
