This is a traditional global favorite chicken recipe, originally using the spicy piri-piri pepper (translated to “pepper pepper” in Swahili). The dish name has morphed into several iterations, including 'pili-pili', but the base flavors remain the same. If these peppers aren't easy to come by, you can easily substitute your favorite hot pepper—try ancho or cayenne.
