Piri Piri Chicken & Spicy Peas

So an absolute rip off of the well known high street chain #cheekynandos. Mine is pretty accurate - I may or may not have visited the factory that makes the sauce for the restaurant and supermarket. The peas recipe is just my take on what's at the restaurant. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 2
For the chicken;
4 skin on bone in chicken thighs (loads of flavour)
1 red pepper
Half bunch basil
Half bunch coriander
3g sea salt
1g coarse black pepper
100ml olive oil
100ml water
4 cloves garlic peeled
2 red onions peeled and roughly chopped
10ml white wine vinegar 
3g smoked paprika
Juice of 1 lemon

For the peas
250g petit pois
20g salted butter 
Pinch sea salt
Pinch pepper
3g mint leaves (off stalk)
1 red chilli deseeded
Juice of half lemon

For the chicken:
1. Put all the ingredients for (everything apart from chicken and thyme) chicken in a blender - blend until smooth
2. Sear (brown) the chicken in an oven tray on the hob, on both sides with the thyme and seasoning. Ensure chicken has the skin facing upwards
3. Pour marinade around the chicken and place in a pre heated oven at 200c for 30-35 min

For the peas;
1. Microwave the peas for 2 min, give it a stir then pop it back in a further 2 min
2. Add the chopped mint, chilli, salt, pepper, lemon juice and butter - give some peas a quick bash 

To serve;
Take chicken out of tray and plate on top of the lovely sauce with peas voila - piece of piss
