We know a lot of people loves this chicken recipe. And here we present you a bit lighter and fresher tasting version, but it retains the same lemony chilli kick. It can be cooked both in the oven and also on the barbie so you get an extra charring and that flame grilled taste.

This makes an amazing dinner served with salad and roasted pumpkin and sweet potato, any left overs would be great stuffed into a pitta (this is not so paleo friendly though).

A note about the hotness level. The chilli content is pretty low, making it great for all the members of the family and kids can relish it too. If you have a higher level of tolerance to chilli then can up the quantities.

Remember that anyone who likes an extra spicy meal could add a sprinkle of hot paprika or more chilli flakes to their Peri Peri Chicken when they sit down to eat.
