Piri piri chickennuggets

I based this recipe on the piri piri chicken poppers from Papa Johns, I also love their hot american pizza and because I'm a big fan of homecooked I also made that recipe on mu website.

Piri piri

The spice mix is so easy to make yourself. You'll have a whole jar with this recipe so enough left to make a nice grilled piri piri chicken.


We'll bake these nuggets in the oven and then toss with some butter. The oven makes the nuggets crispy but a bit dry, but no worries.. the butter will take care of that.


You could make a garlic butter to go with it as dip, but I made this garlic sauce to go with it. Both delicious options.
