  • Ingredients
  • 8 chicken drum sticks
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges for serving
  • Marinade Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic – crushed or grated
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Peri-Peri Sauce
  • 2 chilies diced choose what chili you want for how hot you want
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 125 ml olive oil
  • ½ cup chicken stock put in the instant pot bowl
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon castor sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano


  • Method
  • Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl. 
  • Cut some slices in the chicken flesh to help the marinade penetrate better 
  • Add the chicken pieces and mix and coat the marinade all over- then set aside and leave for an hour in the fridge
  • Peri-Peri Sauce Method
  • Make the Peri Peri sauce by combining all the ingredients except the oregano to a paste in a food processor. Stir in the oregano at the end.(if you have fresh oregano you can put it in the  food processor)
  • If the sauce is too thick thin it down with a little more olive oil
  • Instant pot 
  • Put the chicken stock in the instant pot bowl and mix a little of the peri-peri sauce in to add to flavor.
  • Then add the chicken and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes and 10 minutes of natural pressure release 
  • Take out the chicken and place in a grilling tray – and set your oven to grill. With a brush put some per-peri sauce all over the chicken
  • Then put under the grill for approximately 5 mins, but watch closely so it does not burn.
  • After they are nicely browned they are ready to serve. 
  • We served with some fries- and had the oven on while we were preparing the peri-peri chicken.
