Dukan Piri-Piri chicken


  • 1 kg/2 lbs chicken
  • 1 large lemon, finely grated zest and the juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, pounded into a paste
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Coarse salt to taste
  • 60 ml (2 fluid ounces) Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Red Chillies
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro or parsley



  • Throw everything into a blender and blitz until it it smooth.
  • Butterfly the chicken and remove the skin (sorry you’re on a diet) or get your butcher to butterfly it for you, then make small slits in the thigh & across the breast to break the skin slightly and allow the marinade in.
  • Rub the marinade all over the chicken and leave overnight in a sealed container for best results
  • Cooking: Preheat the oven to 180C  and roast for an hour or grill it on the BBQ
  • After about 45 mins or more frequently on the BBQ baste with the piri-piri sauce on both sides, flipping over a few times
  • enjoy…..
