SW recipe: Piri Piri Chicken

Serves 4
Syn free
Ready in 1 hour, plus marinating


8 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs, visible fat removed
600g new potatoes, scrubbed
2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into bite-size chunks
2 yellow peppers, deseeded and cut into bite-size chunks
2 large red onions, cut into thick wedges
200ml hot chicken stock
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Low-calorie cooking spray
Little gem lettuce leaves, to serve

For the piri-piri marinade:

4-6 red chillies, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small onion, finely chopped
4-5 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves picked, plus a few sprigs to serve
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp tomato purée
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika


1 Put all the marinade ingredients into a small food processor. Whizz to a paste, then tip into a wide glass or stainless-steel bowl. Make 2-3 deep slashes in each chicken thigh using a sharp knife. Add the chicken to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes, or overnight.

2 Boil the potatoes for 5 minutes, then drain well and set aside. Preheat your oven to 200°C/ fan 180°C/gas 6.

3 Put the potatoes, peppers and red onions in a large, non-stick roasting tin. Add the stock, season and toss to coat. Nestle the chicken thighs among the veg with the lemon wedges, spooning over any remaining marinade. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and roast for 40-45 minutes, stirring the veg and turning the chicken halfway, or until the chicken is cooked through. Scatter over the extra thyme sprigs and serve with the lettuce.

These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way.
