Piri Piri potato wedges-Chips ahoy


I dont know about you but I am always searching for a new way with potatoes.
Chicken Piri Piri is an Algarvian classic.Take the Piri Piri out of the chicken and put it into the potatoes and you have a new and exciting side dish to accompany not only roast chicken or an assortment of other dishes.
Piri piri potato wedges
( Fatias de batatas piri piri)
This recipe is so easy! The best part is you don’t fry these - healthy, healthy - they’re baked in the oven.

1 kg (2 lbs) Red skinned waxy Potatoes
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp  Cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
1 tsp strong Piri -Piri sauce (or any Tabasco sauce)
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil (I used my own home made chilli oil)

Wash the potatoes and peel them. Cut the potatoes into wedges about 2.5cms (1/2 inch) wide. Rinse and dry with paper towels. Place the potatoes into a large bowl. Coat with the olive oil then add remaining ingredients.Toss them  well to coat. Lightly oil a large baking sheet with oil and some butter or margarine. Spread the potatoes evenly so that each one is flat on the pan. Cook at 400 degrees for about 1 hour. Turn the fries over from time to time to ensure they get crispy all over.
