Ingredients
    • Method
    1. Step 1

      Preheat oven to 180C. Line a large shallow baking dish with baking paper.

    2. Step 2

      Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium high heat. Add chillies and garlic and cook for 2 mins or until chillies start to blister. Transfer to a small processor. Add oregano, paprika, extra oil, vinegar and salt. Process until just smooth. Reserve 1/2 cup of the piri piri sauce.

    3. Step 3

      Using kitchen scissors, cut down either side of chicken’s backbone. Place chicken breast side up and press down on breastbone to flatten. Pace on prepared dish. Brush 1/2 the remaining piri piri sauce. Bake for 1 hour 30 mins, brushing with the remaining sauce occasionally, until golden and cooked through. Set aside to rest for 10 mins.

    4. Step 4

      Meanwhile, bake the chips for the last 30 mins of cooking time or until golden. Combine the mayonnaise and lemon juice in a small bowl.

    5. Step 5

      Divide the chicken with chips among serving plates. Serve with reserved piri piri sauce, lemon mayonnaise, lemon wedges and oregano leaves.
