Delicious, tender, char grilled, Peri Peri chicken. The avo lime mayo is a zesty accompaniment and great for dipping with sweet potato chips. Peri Peri, Swahili for "pepper pepper", is Portuguese in origin and prevalent in eastern African cooking. In this version I use chilli powder so I can adjust for desired spiciness based on who I am cooking for.

Marinating is essential to keep the chicken moist when grilling

In a bowl, combine all of the avo lime mayo ingredients, except the coriander, with a fork until smooth. Cover and refrigerate. Mix the coriander in when ready to serve.

Make the mayo when making the marinade to develop the flavours

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 220 degrees and line one baking dish with baking paper.
Place the sweet potato on the baking tray, add oil, cayenne pepper, salt and toss to combine. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until golden.
After the sweet potato has been in the oven for 15 minutes preheat a grill pan on high for 2-3 minutes until extremely hot. Alternatively preheat a barbecue grill.
Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 4 minutes each side. Turn the grill to low and cover with a lid for 2-3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Tips
For a mild marinade start with 1/8 tsp and increase to taste. Add more chilli for a spicy marinade.
