Simple Nandos Peri Peri Chicken

I love delicious, quick, and easy ways to make chicken.

Risotto, enchiladas, bacon wrapped chicken- simple, easy preparations for chicken are my absolute favorite!

And so are delicious, spicy, flavorful chicken recipes.

One of my favorite places for spicy chicken has always been Nando’s.

I LOVE Nandos- their spicy Portugese peri peri chicken is one of my favorite things to grab when I am in a town with a Nando’s. I first had them years ago in London, and was really happy when I lived outside of DC for a while and would grab spicy chicken anytime I was near the Nando’s in Chinatown!

While I’ve seen a ton of peri peri recipes online, I will admit I’ve been super lazy about making my own. 

So when I saw Nando’s peri peri sauce in my local grocery store- I was so excited, and knew I wanted to make a tasty, simple, one pot chicken at home.

This peri peri chicken literally can’t be easier.

You dump the chicken in a dish and cook- and out comes juicy, flavorful peri peri chicken breasts!

Each serving is just under 300 calories and pretty low carb- making this a delicious, easy, and healthy dinner! Serve with rice or cauliflower “rice” or over crispy roasted potatoes!

I hope you enjoy this chicken as much as we did!

    Thank you for posting this. I bought a jar of Nando’s sauce and didn’t quite know what to do with it, never having tried their restaurants. Your recipe was
    very good – even for a husband who does not like chicken breasts! I added some sliced zucchini, yellow squash and onion to the sauce with the chicken to bake, and it turned out wonderfully. Served with black beans & rice, watermelon and ceasar salad and I had a winner of a tropical meal. Thanks again!
