Serves: 4


For the PERi-PERi Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup PERi-PERi sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Rice:

  • 2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Bowl:

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup sweet corn, cooked
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Marinate the chicken: In a mixing bowl, combine the PERi-PERi sauce, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours for maximum flavor.

  2. Cook the rice: Rinse the rice in cold water until the water runs clear. In a saucepan, combine the rice, water, salt, and olive oil. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook for 18-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.

  3. Grill the chicken: Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

  4. Assemble the bowls: Divide the cooked rice among four bowls. Top each bowl with sliced PERi-PERi chicken, cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and green onions.

  5. Serve: Garnish each bowl with a lime wedge and additional PERi-PERi sauce, if desired. Enjoy your delicious PERi-PERi Chicken Bowl!


  1. For a vegetarian option, substitute grilled tofu or halloumi for the chicken.
  2. Mix and match vegetables, such as bell peppers, cucumbers, or roasted sweet potatoes, for added variety.
  3. Swap the white rice for brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice for a different base.
  4. Add your favorite beans, such as black beans or chickpeas, for extra protein and fiber.
  5. Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream for added creaminess and tang.
