Do Your Own Nando’s Style Chicken Breast

Do Your Own Nando’s Style Chicken Breast

You ever get a craving for Nando’s? I do. Quite often. It’s really not cost effective to go to Nando’s once a week though, sadly.

The last time I got my cravings, Josh decided we’d just make it ourselves. We had a pot of mango and lime sauce from my last visit, so it made sense. It’s really easy, and if you remember to get your chicken marinading the night before you plan to eat it, it’s really quick.

We had our with chips and macho peas, which is always my go to these days in Nando’s. You could serve the chicken with anything though really, mash, coleslaw, garlic bread… the possibilities are endless.
