CURTIS STONE RECIPE

Ingredients:

6  large red Fresno chilies, (about 5 ounces), coarsely chopped

4 red Thai chilies, stemmed

5 garlic cloves

2 1/2 tsp kosher salt

2/3 cup olive oil

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2 to 3 pieces each

 Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 1 hour, or metal skewers

 grilled flatbreads or 4 purchased naan

Slaw

1/4 small head green cabbage, very thinly sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)

1/4 English (hothouse) cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

1/4 white onion, very thinly sliced

1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves, thinly sliced

1 tbsp finely grated lime zest

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

 Kosher salt

Instructions:

  • To prepare the piri piri chicken, in a food processor, blend the chiles, garlic, vinegar, and salt until smooth. With the machine running, gradually add the oil.
  • In a large bowl, toss the chicken with 2/3 cup of the piri piri mixture to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 1 day. Refrigerate the remaining piri piri sauce.
  • Prepare a grill for high heat. Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers. Grill the skewers, turning frequently and basting with 1/3 cup of the remaining piri piri sauce, for about 12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and charred in spots.
  • Meanwhile, to make the slaw, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, cucumber, onion, and mint. In a small bowl, whisk the lime zest and juice with the oil to blend. Toss the cabbage mixture with enough dressing to coat. Season to taste with salt.
  • To serve, divide the chicken skewers, slaw, and flatbreads among four plates. Serve the remaining piri piri sauce alongside.

The chicken can be marinated for up to 1 day.
