Calling all chicken lovers! If you absolutely adore chicken dishes and especially some fiery spice to go with it, then Nando’s is just the restaurant for you. Imagine this: tender flame-grilled chicken covered with a unique PERi-PERi sauce that’s tailored to your spice preference. When you need a filling meal for yourself or a crowd-pleaser with plenty to divide among everyone, GrabFood’s delivery service allows you to get your fix of delicious Nando’s PERi-PERi Chicken effortlessly.
What is PERi-PERi?
Nando’s unique PERi-PERi sauce has its origins from the rich, fertile soils of Southern Africa, where the African Bird’s Eye Chillies (or PERi-PERi) is known to grow. The full-bodied flavour of chilli captured the hearts of the Portuguese, who added a squeeze of lemon and a dash of garlic to create the first PERi-PERi sauce, and from then on history was made.
To decide on your desired heat level for the PERi-PERi sauce, Nando’s PERi-ometer is a handy guide consisting of five heat levels ranging from the harmless to an over-the-top heat explosion so you can choose your preferred spice intensity. If you want to stay on the safe side, opt for Plain-ish that sees your chicken marinated in PERi-PERi but grilled with no added spice. Lemon & Herb offers a hint of heat coupled with a punch of flavour. Take it up a notch with Mild, which is spicy enough but still bearable. The Hot level is where things really heat up so proceed with caution. Challenge Extra Hot at your own risk!
Legendary PERi-PERi Chicken
Nando’s is famous for its legendary Portuguese flame-grilled chicken that’s highly addictive. Fresh chickens that are locally sourced have their excess fat removed and are marinated in a sauce containing no preservatives, colourants or artificial flavours for 24 hours so that the flavour permeates the chicken, down to the bone. The chicken is then flame-grilled, which further reduces the fat content, and basted evenly with PERi-PERi sauce to keep it succulent and flavourful.
The quarter chicken, half chicken, and even a whole chicken are available for order. Other chicken options include wings that come in 5 or 10, the Chicken Butterfly, a dish of juicy double chicken breast with crispy skin, or the fun Chicken Roulette, 10 wings in various levels of PERi-PERi heat.
Alternatively, have your chicken as a filling in a toasted Portuguese roll, wrap or pita, together with fresh veggies. Perhaps you might even fancy a Caesar Salad with Chicken. Make it a full meal and add on some sides! Choose from sides including PERi-PERi Chips, PERi-PERi Wedges, Corn on the Cob, Coleslaw, Mediterranean Rice, Spicy Rice and Garlic Bread to round off your meal.
