Piri Piri Chicken and Tabouli Salad

Alright, so I've kinda hooked on Jamie Oliver's 30 minute meals.. That being said, the other day I caught his Piri Piri Chicken episode and it got stuck in my head.

Tonight I made it accompanied with a very simple Quinoa Tabouli Salad.

Piri Piri Chicken:

- chicken wings (can be any kind of chicken really, as long as it's bone in skin on)
- sear both sides then add to pan in oven with sauce

Piri Piri Sauce:

- 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
- 3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped (I used 4)
- chrushed red chilli flakes
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 lemon (zest and juice)
- 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- a bunch of fresh basil
- sprinkle of thyme
- salt and pepper

Put in food processor and blend until smooth while adding a little water

After adding the sauce to the chicken in the pan, cook on 400 for about 10 minutes or until fully cooked through (internal temp of 168 F degrees)

Tabouli Salad:

- quinoa, 1 cup (cooked and cooled)
- tomatoes, finely chopped
- cucumber, finely chopped
- red onion, finely chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 lemon juice and zest
- 1 cup parsley
- salt & pepper to taste

Damn good recipe, quick & easy.
