Default Chicken done right

Have you guys ever tried Peruvian chicken. SO made is for me recently. This stuff is great,specially with the green Aji sauce.

That is so good you have to kill yourself when your done.

Just kidding I don't condone such things.

YES!!! there are several peruvian "restaurants"--really just hole in the wall places, near my parents home. whenever i visit i must have it and my father always gets extra sauce.
my favorite thing is the rice "especial"--with shrimp, chicken and beef...like fried rice---i LOVE this food.

Here's a possibility -- Source: El Pollo Restaurant, NY

EL POLLO RESTAURANT PERUVIAN ROASTED CHICKEN

2 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. ground cumin
4 tablespoons white vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons white wine
3 tablespoons soya or canola oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 (3 to 4 pound) chicken
juice of 1 lemon, mixed with 1 quart cold water

In medium-size bowl, mix first eight ingredients.

Wash chickens thoroughly with lemon water and remove excess fat from inside chickens. With a large carving fork, poke deep holes all over chicken, including under wings. Rub the marinade thoroughly inside and outside the chicken. Seal chicken in a large plastic bag and marinate for at least 2 hours (but preferably up to 24 hours) in refrigerator.

Remove chicken from bag and dilute marinade left behind in bag with a Tablespoon of water. (Place marinade in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer 2-3 minutes. Set aside.)

Place chicken on a rotisserie spit, and roast at medium heat for 45 to 55 minutes. If broiling, cut chicken in half lengthwise and broil for 30 to 40 minutes, basting with marinade every 10 minutes.

Servings: 4

Are we talking Pollo a la Brasa here??? It is definitely high up there as chicken goes. I have been experimenting/perfecting my aji to go with it for a few years now - the restaurants where they serve the best aji are not willing to share their secrets.

So long as it's the creamy/mayo-based version, and not that chunky, oily version they serve at Pollo Inca restaurants - I really don't like that kind.

I've got the following ingredients so far for the version that I like:

green onions
jalapenos
mayo (I prefer best foods)
cucumbers
huacatay

I use a blender and I add milk to thin if necessary.
