Chicken piri-piri
Explanation:
If you do a search on "piri-piri", you will find several recipes, all of which maintain the original name.

Piri-piri is a very famous dish from the south of Portugal, especially in the province of Algarve.

The chicken is prepared like barbecue, after being marinated in a piri-piri sauce.

Le Piri-piri is a little red pepper from the ancient portuguese colonies in Africa (Mozambique, Angola) and it was introduced in the european continent at that time.

From another source:
Piri-piri is made from hot Angolan peppers chopped and soaked in olive oil. It is not as hot as our labuyo and so it tastes so piquantly delightful.
