The name “poultry” comes from the French word “poule” which is actually derived from the Latin word “pullus”, meaning small animal.
Poultry is one of the most commonly consumed types of protein not for one but many good reasons; It is lean meat, available in plenty, and has a very neutral flavour that goes very well with any palate. Poultry is the second most widely eaten type of meat after pork, accounting for over 30% of the total world meat production and sixteen billion birds are annually raised for consumption.
Poultry Recipe of the Day - Peri Peri Chicken
The Peri-Peri Chicken is a spicy chicken dish with roots both in Africa and Portugal. This dish was created in Angola and Mozambique when Portuguese settlers arrived here with a special chilli pepper called African Bird’s Eye Chilli (known as Piri-Piri in the Swahili language).
It was probably the Portuguese who introduced the African Bird's Eye Chili Pepper as we know it today to Europe and the Far East. They probably were also the first to use peppers to create a hot sauce. Nowadays the Peri-Peri sauce in its many variants is enjoyed by people around the world.
Chicken marinated in deliciously spicy Peri-Peri sauce and grilled to one’s liking.
