Nando’s Chicken Friday Night Fakeaway
Its hard to beat a yummy takeaway at the weekend but maybe you’d prefer to eat at home and save some money. You really don’t have to miss out if you get yourself a few simple ingredients. I don’t know about you but on a Friday night I really don’t want to cook. I want a takeaway. So as a compromise, when I’m saving money and not eating out, this is one of my favourite go-to Friday night takeaways.

Method for Nando’s Chicken Fakeaway
Pre-heat the oven as per Nando’s Bag and Bake packet instructions. Chop chicken fillets into quarters. Split the chicken between the two bags. Bake till times up and juices run clear. While the temperature on the chips may be different, we make do with the temperature for the chicken and cook the chips at the same time. I’m not leaving the oven on any longer than it needs to be in this current climate.
Put some oil into the chips tray along with a generous amount of peri-peri salt and combine well. Put the chips in the tray (or trays if you need more than one) and coat the chips in the oil and peri peri mixture well.
The Nando’s bag and bake chicken and the peri peri chips should both take about a half an hour to cook. Be sure to check your chips half way through cooking time and give them a shake up to make sure they are cooking evenly.
Serve with coleslaw or charred corn and if you like, you can add some burger buns and have peri peri burgers and chips. This is a really simple, cheap and fun replacement for your weekend takeaway that will help you to save money.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe..
