Peteformation Fusion Peri Peri Chicken – Ayam Penyet Mat Salleh (Western Smashed Chicken)

Actually I was trying to make peri-peri chicken (origin South Africa) but I was too adventurous and ended up adding too much of our local ingredients in to it. It was a blessing in disguised and I accidentally stumbled upon a new recipe, a roasted chicken with new flavours. Anyway it still has a tinge of peri peri taste and aroma in it; something that is very hard for me to describe here! LOL!
The base ingredients of a peri peri chicken are oregano, paprika, lemon and bay leaves. Then you can add in other ingredients to tune it to your liking. For some extra heat, I used pre packed chilly powder. It looks like peri peri chicken, sounds like peri peri chicken but it is Peri Peri Ayam Penyet Mat Salleh! Ha ha ha!

Ingredients
Chicken, one whole, butterfly cut and press the back bone to flatten it
Oregano powder, 2 table spoons
Paprika, 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice from one lemon
Bay leaves, 2 pcs
Cumin, 1 teaspoon
Coriander, 1 teaspoon
Turmeric, ½ teaspoon
Chilly powder, 1 tablespoon
Brown Sugar to taste
Salt to taste
Honey, to glaze the chicken

Marinate the chicken overnight with all the ingredients. Let the fridge air dry up the chicken skin and it will be crispy. Heat up oven and roast the chicken at 180 Dec C for 1 hour or until it turned golden brown. Glaze the chicken with honey and continue roasting for around 5 to 10 minutes.

Wonder what kind of chicken did you recommend, ayam kampung? Or normal chicken that we bought from market?

"Let the fridge dry up its skin" means doesn't need to wrap up in cling wrap? Thanks!

Have a nice day ahead!

Alice : Better use normal chicken because ayam kampung will be too tough unless, you steamroast (ie put water in the dripping tray) at lower heat 105 Dec C for 2 hours, then ayam kampung would be tender.

Yes, don't cling wrap it. Let the skin dry up.

Have a nice day too, Alice.

Mei Teng said...

The peri peri chicken served at Nando's not too bad. But I only go for the chicken drumstick or wings. I don't eat chicken breast meat. Find it tough and dry.

Pete said...

Mommy Ling : Oh Oh, now become kangkang chicken...LOL!

Mei Teng : I also like drumstick and wings....

mNhL said...

Ahh...a new found receipe. Looks really yummy. Shred the meat and eat them with bread, mayo & cilli sauce. Really yummy.
