Chicken Piri Piri Style

Got the inspiration for this dish from Jamie Oliver. I was lovely but next time I would like to make the chicken bit more crispier by using the chicken with the skin for baking! :D

Ingredients: Serve 4
4 large chicken thighs/ legs
1 yellow or red pepper
1/2tsp thyme

For sauce 
1  red onion
2 cloves of garlic
3 green chillies
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp chilie flakes
1lemon (I added zest of lime and juice)
2 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
A bunch of fresh parsley
salt and pepper
Olive oil 1tbsp

Method: Put the chicken thighs on a chopping board and slash the meat on each side few times. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Then put on the griddle pan that is heating up.Cook until golden on each side. 

Make Piri Piri sauce: Peel and roughly chop the red onion  and add to the liquidizer with 2 peeled cloves of garlic. Add the chillies (stalks removed), 1 tablespoon of paprika, the zest of 1 lemon and juice of ½ a lemon. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, a good pinch of salt and pepper, the bunch of parsley and a swig of water. Blitz until smooth. 
When the chicken is golden brown,pour the piri piri sauce into a snug-fitting roasting tray.  Add the chicken to the roasting tray with the sauce. Scatter over the thyme, then put the tray on top shelve of oven. Bake in a 210C oven for 10minutes.
  Slice the peppers into strips and add to the griddle pan. Turn the heat down to medium and keep moving the peppers around till gets soft and brown patches occurs. 
Serve chicken on a serving plate with the sauce from the bottom of baking tray spooned over the chicken and with grilled peppers.
