We are all familiar with Chickenpops. But have you tried Peri-Peri Chickenpops? I made this recipe because of the Peri-Peri sauce I posted. Usually I do this with whole chicken, but on this recipe, I used the wing parts. Using the sauce as marinate, it gave the chicken a fusion of flavors from the sauce. This dish is ideal as appetizer, main course or to bring on picnics. Shout out to spicy food lovers, this is for you! For those who are more adventurous, you can also use the sauce for dipping. On y va les gars! Let’s go guys!
