Butterfly chicken to ensure even cooking, crispy golden brown skin

This Pollo a la Brasa, also known as Peruvian-Style Roasted Chicken, is considered one of the most popular dishes in Peru.

This is indeed one of the best chicken recipes I have ever tasted. Luckily, I cracked the code, so we don’t need to go to Peru to taste their most prized dish.

Butterflying the chicken in this recipe is an extra step that will ensure even cooking and crispy golden brown skin. Don’t worry because I will explain how to do it in the instructions.

You’re going to love the complex and contrasting combinations of tangy, savory, peppery, sweet, and citrus flavors of this chicken recipe.

This amazing flavor explosion is thanks to chili powder, paprika, garlic, oregano, cumin, lime, honey, and a lot more. It’s like a magical fireworks show happening inside your mouth.

This famous Peruvian chicken is traditionally cooked over hot wood coals to achieve that robust smoky flavor. But let’s be honest, we don’t have enough time for that.

What makes this chicken recipe special is the spicy green sauce called Aji Verde - perfectly complements the chicken with exquisite combinations of complex flavors from various herbs and spices.
