Wait, are you saying to serve the piri piri sauce, that you had the raw chicken in, for dipping??

No Duarte, the recipe asks for 3 tablespoons of the piri piri sauce, only one tablespoon is used in the sauce, the remainding two tablespoons are for dipping. I will make this more clear in the recipe.
