Peri Peri Grilled Chicken (Indian flavored)

This Peri Peri Chicken is tender, spicy and loaded with flavor! Since I’ve added Indian spices to it, this version of peri peri chicken is the ultimate grilled chicken recipe you will ever need.

Today, I’m sharing the recipe of these super spicy Peri Peri Chicken that are the perfect companion to all your summer grill plans. I have to say in the begininning itself that the entire credit for this recipe goes to the original owner of the recipe Fadwa’s Kitchen . It was my sister (Ethatha), who shared the recipe link with me. I knew that if Ethatha said it is nice, it would definitely be the best and it sure was.🤤

I prepared using the exact same recipe, but I just reduced the quantity of the red chillies. Even though this grilled chicken was more on the spicy side, my kids loved it a lot. I have already posted a Peri Peri Chicken recipe before and that is a fantastic recipe too. Check that out here. This is a little different because of the Indian spices that is added here. The whole coriander, cumin etc gives it a very unique flavor. It is too good. Give it a try.
