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. While not a "Caribbean" dish I feel it's a dish we would definitely relate to, due to our connection to Africa and Portugal. The Peri Peri chicken at Nandos was good, however I found a true 'depth' of flavor was missing and the 'promise' of heat fell short. Yes, as a son of the Caribbean I do appreciate a bit of heat. So here's my take on Peri Peri chicken.

Tasty Island Style Roasted Chicken Drumsticks.

Tasty Island Style Roasted Chicken Drumsticks.

Here's a quick and simple chicken dish I usually make during the cooler months when I can use the oven without overheating the entire house. During the summer months these marinated chicken pieces also make its way onto my outdoor grill. The key with this recipe is the spiced rub we marinate the chicken with for maximum Caribbean appeal. If you decide to rock these on your outdoor grill, I'd recommend cooking them on an indirect heat or you'll risk burning the spices and you won't like the outcome.

Island Style Drunk Grilled Chicken.

Island Style Drunk Grilled Chicken.

Yes, it's time again for the annual July Month Of Grilling and we're kicking things off with one of the best chicken recipes I've ever shared. Growing up on the islands, grilling/BBQ was never really something we'd have at home. BBQ at home wasn't common (I don't ever recall seeing a propane grill), so the odd time we'd have anything close to bbq, it would be takeout or the times we'd have village bazaars, where it would also be on sale. However when we were treated to bbq takeout.. what a feast!

Oven Roasted Curry Chicken Recipe.

Oven Roasted Curry Chicken Recipe.

Mom never swayed from the 'traditional' way of cooking curry chicken (as done in the Caribbean) when she would sort us out with a good curry and dhalpuri roti on the occasional Sunday morning. While nothing can compare to such a classic method of cooking curry chicken, I'm always looking for ways to change things up a bit. In this recipe we'll marinate the chicken in a rich yogurt curry marinade, before roasting it in the oven.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Sandwich.

The Ultimate Fried Chicken Sandwich.

Though this recipe was influenced by an image/advertising poster we saw at a local McDonalds restaurant, the manner in which we marinate, 'bread' and fry the chicken is 100% Caribbean! It's a recipe our mom would use when making fried chicken for us and not unlike many such recipes you'll encounter as you make your way up the island chain which makes up the West Indies. For maximum flavor and texture, I'll highly recommend using boneless chicken thighs, but if chicken breasts are your thing... you'll also have fun with that.

Sofrito Pan Roasted Chicken Recipe.

Sofrito Pan Roasted Chicken Recipe.

It's only natural that after posting the Sofrito recipe a while back, I'd have a way for you to put such a classic ingredient to use. Sofrito is basically a seasoning base made in the Spanish speaking Caribbean which is added to enhance the overall flavor of meats, stews, soups and other dishes. In this recipe I'll show you how simple it is to take something as boring as chicken breast and pan roast them on your stove-top for what I believe is the most juicy (and delicious) way to enjoy a part of the chicken notorious for being overly dry and bland.
