Step 1

Place chicken in a roasting pan and set aside.

Step 2

In a small mixing bowl whisk together lemon juice and garlic.

Step 3

Pour the lemon mixture over the chicken and coat all around.

Step 4

Season chicken with salt; cover and let sit on the kitchen counter for 30 to 60 minutes.

Step 5

In the meantime, chop the chillies and garlic; add to a blender or food processor. NOTE: I advise to wear gloves when working with chilies.

Step 6

Add in lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pulse until blended.

Step 7

Add paprika and oil; process until smooth and completely combined.

Step 8

Taste for seasonings and add more chilies, or salt and pepper, if you want. You can also add a little bit of sugar to add a bit of sweetness to the sauce.

Step 9

Preheat oven to 400˚F.

Step 10

Roast previously prepared chicken for about 32 to 35 minutes, or until cooked through. Baste with its juices half way through cooking. Chicken is done when internal temperature reaches 165˚F. Use an instant read thermometer for accuracy.

Step 11

In the meantime, preheat a griddle pan to medium-hot.

Step 12

Remove chicken from oven and brush on prepared Piri Piri Sauce all over. Save some sauce for serving.

Step 13

Add chicken pieces to hot griddle pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until browned and starting to char.

Step 14

Flip chicken over and continue to cook for 2 minutes, or until browned on opposite side.

Step 15

Garnish with parsley and serve with lemon wedges and remaining Piri Piri sauce.
