Well it seems as though I've bested that pesky groundhog
What was that?
Frango Piri-Piri (Piri-Piri Chicken)
1 medium sized chicken, washed
salt, to taste
1 cup Molho de Piri-Piri (recipe follows)
Pinch of ground Piri-Piri chiles (can substitute piquin or Thai)
Pinch of oregano (fresh or dried)
1/4 cup Molho Piri-Piri
1 lemon, sliced
Place the chicken on a cutting board and split it lengthwise at the breastbone so that it will lie flat. Flatten it as much as possible with a mallet. Place in a shallow pan sprinkle with salt and pour the Mohlo over it. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
