Portuguese Piri Piri Chicken Wings

Piri Piri Chicken wings are so delicious that you’ll keep making them again and again at every party! I used an air fryer to bake these wings but you can also bake them in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 30 minutes or longer until crispy. Use this sauce to make piri piri chicken too. Enjoy!

2 pounds uncooked chicken wings

piri piri sauce

cooking spray


Piri Piri Sauce recipe:

20 fresh birds eye whole peppers (use 2 large red peppers if unavailable)

6 red jalapeno peppers (seed and chop)

6 cloves garlic

juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons white vinegar

2 tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon salt

½ cup olive oil


Place all ingredients into a blender and pulse to a smooth consistency. Place in jars and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

NOTE: I cook down the sauce for about 5 minutes and serve along with the wings for dipping.

Chicken Wings:

Marinate room temperature wings for at least 2 hours or overnight in refrigerator.

Lightly coat air fryer with cooking spray. Place half of wings (shake off marinade) in fryer and lightly spray with cooking spray. Cook at 400 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes until crispy. Cook remaining wings.

You can also bake at 400 degrees F. for about 30 minutes until crispy depending on your oven.
