Dukan Recipes: Portuguese Chicken
I’ve seen this recipe posted in a few places – there is also one called Paprika Chicken in the Diabetic’s Cookbook that Ken and I have been using on the weekends.
I can imagine it would have been even better if I had marinated it overnight like suggested. Or it could quite possibly have been too awesome for me to handle and my taste buds might have exploded.
Portuguese (Piri Piri) Chicken
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 8 thighs)
- juice of half a lemon
- juice of half a lime
- 2 cloves of garlic (I used two teaspoons of crushed garlic)
- 2 teaspoons of crushed chilies
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- Salt and black pepper
I didn’t have any fresh lemons or any fresh limes.
I also didn’t have time to marinate overnight so I went overboard and left the breasts swimming in lemon and lime juice. I also made a few cuts and ensured that the mixture sat in the breasts before I threw them in the oven.
I served it with a handful of coriander and a tablespoon of greek yoghurt (under 2%).
Above, Bronnie served hers with parsley.
Next time, I will probably increase the tablespoons of crushed chilies to 3.
