Dry chicken is not the recipe's fault. Grill the chicken over a nice medium fire but remove it as soon as the juices run clear, just like the recipe says - perfect, juicy, every time, no matter the recipe. Peri peri is big here in South Africa - Cheers! Mike

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the paprika, chili powder, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and salt. Rub chicken with the mixture, place in a dish, and marinate for 3 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill for medium heat.
  3. Place chicken onto the grill and discard the marinade. Cook for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skin is slightly charred and juices run clear.
