Peri Peri Chicken (better than Nandos)

Peri Peri Chicken (better than Nandos)

After my birthday dinner at Nandos compliments of Indy, I came back with an urgency to give Peri Peri chicken a try.

Yes, there is a difference (so the "experts" will have you believe), but this post is not about the differences between BBQ and grilling, but rather the basic idea of getting the most flavor and best texture from chicken on your grill.
