Cauliflower fries with piri-piri chicken

Enjoy our Cauliflower fries with piri-piri chicken, some sweetcorn and greens for a lighter midweek dinner option that doesn’t compromise on flavour. If you don’t like it too hot, adjust the amount of chillies so the whole family can enjoy!

1 bag Green Isle Cauliflower Fries

For the piri-piri chicken:

2 half chickens – you can ask your butcher for the halves or alternatively buy a whole chicken and half it yourself

2 small red finger chillies

2 garlic cloves, peeled

Juice of 1 lemon

1½ teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika

50 ml olive oil

To serve:

Green salad

Green Isle Sweetcorn or Corn on the Cob

Method:  

  1. For the chicken, place the red chilies, garlic cloves, lemon juice, salt, paprika and olive oil into a small food processor and blitz until smooth. Pour into a small bowl, cover and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220 C / 200 C fan. Place the chicken halves onto a roasting tray and sprinkle liberally with salt. Roast the chicken for about 50 minutes - 1 hour, until cooked through, basting with its juices occasionally. Place the cauliflower fries on a tray and add them to the oven 15 minutes before the chicken is done.
  3. When the chicken and cauliflower fries are cooked, remove from the oven and keep warm whilst you turn the grill to high. Brush the chicken with the piri piri oil and place under the hot grill for about 5 minutes, until the skin has crisped and charred in places.
  4. Serve the chicken with the cauliflower fries and some green salad and Green Isle on the side.
