This spicy citrus-toned chicken is a favourite in South African regions, but derived from the Portuguese. I had some at a Mozambique restaurant many moons ago and missed it so much, I had to learn how to make it. Any kind of side dish goes well with this: rice, potatoes, bread, you name it.

Prep Time: 5 minutes, not including marinating time

Cook Time: 1 hour


  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Place everything, except chicken and salt, into a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover and marinate for at least 2 hours, but overnight is best.
  3. Remove chicken from fridge. Preheat oven to 400 F. Place chicken in a baking dish and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, pausing once to baste chicken with pan juices.
