South African Chicken Peri Peri

The term “piri piri” may well be of Portuguese origin, but it is the Portuguese conquest of Africa that can be credited with the famous Piri Piri chicken from southern Africa. Both Piri Piri and Peri Peri are used as terminology in Southern Africa – depending on which country’s chicken you’re trying. Red hot peppers were brought into Africa during colonisation, which gave birth to delicacies like Piri Piri Chicken in Mozambique, Angola and South Africa.
