While the word “piri” comes from an African word for chile, piri-piri chicken is a specialty of Portuguese cuisine. This is most likely the result of Portuguese colonists in east Africa that adopted the local method of preparing piri-piri chicken as their own.

Our Portuguese Piri Piri Blend is a dry seasoning that recreates the combination of zesty chile heat and bright citrus flavors characteristic of piri-piri sauce. The seasoning’s flavor is delicately balanced with smoked sweet paprika and aromatics including garlic and ginger. It is ready to use as-is, or can be stirred together with olive oil and/or lemon juice to create a thin paste that can be used as a marinade or basting sauce.
