Galinha à portuguesa (Portuguese pronunciation: [ɡɐˈɫĩɲ aː puɾtuˈɣezɐ]) or "Portuguese-style chicken" (葡國雞) is a dish of Macanese cuisine. Despite its name, Galinha à portuguesa did not originate from Portugal as such; rather it came from Macao, where the dish was given the "Portuguese" name to enhance its status.

Galinha à portuguesa is served as pieces of chicken, potato and sometimes boiled rice with a mild, coconut-based, curry-like sauce, baked till golden and with a distinctive aroma.
