Peri-peri sauce is a hot, spicy chile–pepper–based condiment that originated in the Portuguese colonies of Africa. Available at most supermarkets, it gives the chicken a tangy not-too-hot flavor. Look for it near the hot sauces.

Prepare a medium-high (400°F to 475°F) gas or charcoal grill fire.
Combine the garlic, peri-peri sauce, oil, zest, and 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl.
Using a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap until uniform in thickness. Add the chicken to the peri-peri mixture, tossing to coat, and marinate for about 10 minutes.
Starting skin side down, grill the chicken, flipping once, until cooked through (160°F), about 15 minutes total. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for a few minutes. Slice the chicken, if you like, and serve.
So easy to make and very tasty!
