Nandos Style Lemon & Herb Chicken | Healthy Fakeaway Recipe

Nandos Style Lemon & Herb Chicken recipe picture

If you love Nandos, you'll love this Nandos Style Lemon & Herb Chicken fakeaway recipe!

It's no secret that I love to make a Fakeaway- a popular takeaway or fast food classic that's made at home and healthier. 

Nandos have a wide range of their sauces to buy, but they are often quite oil heavy and not all that healthy, if you're trying to watch the calories or lose weight. This is why I love to try and make my own at home!

Previously I based it on the spicy sauce. For those who aren't a fan of the heat may be a fan of their 'lemon and herb' sauce. It's milder, with a zesty lemon kick
