Piri Piri Chicken

Piri Piri chicken is really popular in England and you can find that flavour in everything from ham to hummus in English supermarkets, not so much here in the states though. I really don't know why I have never tried to make it myself before, as it was so easy to make and so good.

6 chicken thighs
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 red onion
1 orange
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dried coriander leaf
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil

Preheat oven to 400.

Mix together the chopped bell peppers and chopped red onion with the ground coriander and a tablespoon of oil, place in a large baking dish.

Mix the coriander leaf, red chili flakes, garlic powder, paprika, lemon pepper and salt with the remaining oil and lemon juice in a large bowl.  Add the chicken and coat evenly, place on top of the vegetables.

Cut the orange into wedges and squeeze over the chicken then place in the baking dish.  Cook for 45 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
