Way back in the 15th Century, in the intense heat of Southern Africa, Portuguese explorers discovered the African Birds Eye Chilli. Known as Peri-Peri, this fiery little chilli combined with special herbs and spices, lemon and a touch of garlic are the ingredients that give Nando's original flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken its unique flavour. The complete recipe remains a closely guarded family secret handed down from generation to generation.
At Nando's you will experience traditional hospitality, warmth and fun and your senses will be fired up by the naturally addictive flavour of the delicious Peri-Peri chicken, grilled to perfection and served with pride and passion. Nando's pride themselves that their chicken is fresh and never frozen. The A-grade chickens are butterfly-cut and then marinated in the top-secret marinade for 24 hours to ensure that the flavour penetrates right through the meat. The chicken is flame-grilled right in front of you and basted thoroughly with your choice of sauce - lemon and herb for the not so brave, medium Peri-Peri for the slightly more adventurous and hot or extra hot Peri-Peri for real daredevils. Flame-grilling the chicken means a lot of the fat literally disappears in the process and the result is the finest tasting chicken in the world.
