Roast Chicken with Nando's Sauce

This is the meal that I cooked for 2 consecutive Sundays. With these 2 meals, my bottle of Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce was finally used up. That was one of my goal. Another target was to complete my other house chores while the chicken was roasted in the oven. I’m now a multi-tasking mom, hehe…

Roast Chicken with Nando's Sauce
Serves 2
2 chicken thighs, deboned and excess fat discarded
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 carrot, peeled and cut into chunks
6 fresh button mushrooms, quartered
1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
2 tbsp of olive oil

3 tbsp of Nando's Hot Peri-Peri sauce
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 tbsp of light soy sauce
dashes of black pepper powder

1. Make tiny holes over the chicken thighs with fork. Marinate the chicken thigh for 3 hours.
2. Boil the carrot and potato for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
3. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of olive oil in a baking tray. Arrange the onion, potato, button mushroom and carrot. Sprinkle another tbsp of olive oil over the vegetables.
4. Arrange the chicken on top of the vegetables.
5. Roast the chicken in the preheated oven under 200 deg C for 40 minutes. Next, increase the temperature to 240deg C and roast the chicken for another 8 minutes. Note: My oven requires higher temperature to brown the chicken. You can adjust accordingly.

I love making roasted meat. It's hassle free and flavourful as well. Good on you both adults, at least can enjoy some lovely home cook meal.
