AJ’s Story

The Portuguese were prolific explorers, and on their many journeys of discovery they amassed a treasure trove of herbs, spices and ingredients that have resulted in the truly unique cuisine of Portugal.

One of the now best known spices is Piri Piri derived from the tiny chilli peppers that the Portuguese introduced from Angola and Mozambique. Blended with other herbs and spices this resulted in the infamous fiery hot sauce that we used to marinade and baste our chicken pieces, giving you our fantastic, saucy and succulent mouth watering AJ’s Piri Piri Chicken.
