I’m not sure if using a shop bought marinade is considered cheating but I don’t think I care if it makes the job easier – which it does!
To allow the chicken to cook quicker and allow the marinade to get into the chicken meat I like to cut 2-3 slashes in to the chicken drummers prior to rubbing the nandos marinade and nandos dry rub in to the chicken. (I used both for extra flavour)
Place the marinated chicken in a roasting tin and roast in the oven for 30 minutes at 190fan or until chicken is cooked.

I also like to serve this with a mixed potato mash. For this quarter one sweet potato and one ordinary potato and place in a bowl with half a lemon and a table spoon of water. Cover in clingfilm and cook/ steam in the microwave for approx 8 minutes until the potatoes are cooked. When done, remove the lemon, squeeze out any excess juice in to the bowl and roughly crush and mix the potatoes with a fork, leave the skin on and season with salt, pepper and a little bit of coriander (paste) and I like to crumble some feta over the top too. Yum!
One thought on “Peri Peri Chicken with Lemony Mixed Mash”
I suspect a home made marinade would taste slightly better but sometimes speed and convenience totally outweigh a slight taste difference!
