There are currently no Nando’s restaurants near where I stay but much to my delight I came across Nando’s PERi PERi medium sauce. The signature sauce is a taste explosion – its spicy, sweet, sour, and salty all at once. I usually find it hard to cook chicken breasts without over cooking them, so I tried them out in the air fryer. Not going to lie it’s a complete game changer. What PERi PERi sauce spice level do you go?

  1. Smother the chicken in the PERi PERii sauce and 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. Marinate for a least one hour. Ideally overnight in the fridge if you have time.

  3. Air fry the chicken for about 20 minutes at 400f (depending on the size of the chicken)
