  3. Increase the red chilli powder or chilli flakes used in the marinade to make the dish spicier.

  4. To add a smoky flavour to the dish, you can grill the chicken on a barbecue grill instead of cooking it in a skillet.

  5. You can add more lemon juice to make the dish tangier.

  6. For a vegetarian version, you can use tofu instead of chicken.

  7. You can add vegetables like broccoli, carrots, cauliflower etc., to add more flavour and nutrients to the dish.

  8. You can serve the peri chicken with rice or salad instead of dips for low-carb options.
