125g bottle of PERi-PERi Sauce (choose your flavour)

Put the chicken thighs in a bowl and rub all over with the sauce. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and put in the fridge for at least 1 hour to marinate, preferably overnight.

Heat up a grill pan on the stove.
5
When it’s smoking hot, put the thighs skin side down in the grill pan.
