Picante Chicken

peppadews or picante peppers 20 g

chicken breast 200 g

cream cheese 20 g

feta cheese 30 g

bread crumbs 20 g

peri-peri marinade 30 ml


  1. Mix together the finely chopped peppadews with a tablespoon of cream cheese and an approximately 10 g cube of feta cheese.

  2. While mixing these ingredients,  add ½ to 1 teaspoon of bread crumbs for binding.

  3. Lay the chicken breasts out on a clean surface, and spoon about 1/3 cup of this cheese mixture onto each one. Roll up chicken to enclose the mixture and tie it gently with a thread.

  4. Add 50 ml of base peri- peri marinade in a separate dish and coat the stuffed chicken with it. Cover the dish or seal the chicken in a plastic bag and refrigerate it for 24 hours.

  5. Before grilling the marinated chicken, slightly grease the griller rack with oil and pre-heat to medium.

  6. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning and brushing often with peri-peri sauce.

  7. When done, remove the chicken breasts, and slice it into two to three pieces to serve.
