Portuguese style Chicken

This is a spicy chicken that is juicy and succulent, it has Portuguese flavours. You can cook this using a full chicken or chicken pieces. Perfect for a Summer BBQ.

Prep 10 minutes
Total 45 minutes
  • Using a blender or smoothie maker add all of the marinade ingredients and blend into a smooth paste.
  • Season the chicken well with salt and pepper, place into an oven dish.
  • Cover the chicken with the paste, cover with foil and marinade in the fridge for an hour, or longer if you can. It will taste great if you leave it overnight.
  • Heat the oven to the hottest setting, once hot place the chicken in and cook for 15 minutes covered.
  • After this time turn the heat down to 200℃ and cook for another 20 minutes.
  • The chicken should now be juicy and cooked, remove the foil, carefully pour some of the hot marinade back over the chicken and turn the oven to the hottest setting, cook for another 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is nicely charred, alternatively stick onto a hot BBQ and get it crisp.


I’m Lulu, and have been in love with food my whole life. I however took the route of fashion design and have worked within the industry for nearly 20 years, but I always shared recipes with friends and colleagues and dreamed of cooking full time. I am a previous Masterchef contestant which just confirmed I needed cooking to be part of my life plan. These days I am lucky to have a hand in both; being creative in any area is really what I enjoy.


I cook a lot of curries as my family have Indian roots, I also have a cookbook out called CURRY UP. But don’t get ‘curried’ away as I enjoy cooking most foods.


It just about sharing the food love really, nothing more. I hope what you see makes you hungry and entices you to try the recipes out!
