While we don’t have a halal Nandos/Galitos local to us, Peri Peri chicken is a favorite for everyone in my house.
The Nandos sauce that you can buy at your local grocery store is a great way to get the flavor for a semi-homemade version of your Peri Peri chicken. I’ve made this with chicken pieces before, and this time around I made it with chicken wings.
Tip: marinating makes a big difference and you should definitely marinate ahead of time.
Here’s how to make it:
- Take your chicken wings and with a fork mark your wings so that your marinade will seep through to the inside of your wings.
- Season your chicken wings with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and ginger powder and the Nandos sauce of your choice (I use medium, but they have various heat levels).
- In your grill machine, grill your chicken wings and brush additional nandos sauce on top several times, both before you flip the chicken and after.
- Brush additional nandos sauce as you are removing the chicken from the grill machine, right before serving.
