Peri peri chicken is a South African recipe that's popular all over the world. Pressure cooking in the Instant Pot, finishing on the grill and brushing with extra sauce gives the chicken a spicy-tangy barbecue flavor that’s amazing! [Grill-only instructions also included.]
For the peri peri marinade, combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, hot sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, onion powder, black pepper, salt, paprika, and oregano in a blender jar. Blend until the marinade is smooth.
Place chicken thighs in a large bowl and pour in the marinade. Scrape the blender jar with a silicone spatula to get all the marinade.
Marinate the chicken for 8 hours to overnight. If you're really short on time, try for 30 minutes at least.
