Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients together, the chili paste, white wine, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic cloves, bay leaves and 1 tablespoon of the piri-piri sauce (the other 2 tablespoons are for dipping)..
  2. Add the chicken to the bowl and mix it well so it is all coated.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, turning occasionally (it can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours if you want to prepare it in advance).
  4. Keep the marinade when you remove the chicken and place the chicken skin side down on a greased grill over medium heat, close the lid and cook for about 10 minutes.
  5. Turn and brush the chicken with the marinade and let it cook for 30 to 40 minutes or until well browned.
  6. Once done, serve with the remaining 2 tablespoons of piri-piri sauce in a small bowl for dipping on the side.

Wait, are you saying to serve the piri piri sauce, that you had the raw chicken in, for dipping??

No Duarte, the recipe asks for 3 tablespoons of the piri piri sauce, only one tablespoon is used in the sauce, the remainding two tablespoons are for dipping. I will make this more clear in the recipe.
