Brush marinade all over chicken, sprinkle generously with salt, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.

    Preheat a chargrill or charcoal barbecue on high. Cook chicken for 40 minutes, turning and basting frequently with marinade, until golden brown and cooked through. Cut into pieces with kitchen scissors and spoon over piri piri sauce. Serve with potatoes, lettuce, lemon and sliced tomatoes.

    Super tasty and very easy to make.  Loved how juicey the chicken was.  I used medium red chillies and added  aioli to the options and it was just soo yummy.
