Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/ Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Spread the courgette, onion, pepper and tomatoes in a shallow roasting tin, and pour the Fiesta Marinade over the vegetables . Season with salt and coarsely ground black pepper and prepare to pop in the oven for 20 minutes.
  2. Slash the flesh of each chicken breast 3-4 times using a sharp knife, lay the chicken and marinade with piri-piri sauce. Cover the tin with foil and cook for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the foil from the tin. Return to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes until the vegetables are juicy and look tempting to eat and the chicken is cooked through (the juices should run clear when pierced with a skewer).

Enjoy! We served our Piri-Piri Chicken with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables with sweet potato chips!
