Peruvian Inspired Chicken
This recipe inspired by Peruvian Chicken or “Pollo A La Brasa” is succulent, flavourful, and very easy to make! The spice lacquered crispy skin contrasts perfectly with the punchy jalapeno green sauce. It’s, quite simply, the ultimate chicken
Peruvian style rotisserie chicken, also known as Polo a La Brasa, became hugely popular along the East Coast of the United States a few years back. My home kitchen version takes some liberties to create an easily achievable weeknight winner and uses a lighter herb-based sauce made with yoghurt. Finish your chicken in an air fryer to achieve the tender juicy chicken, with super crispy skin.
This dish is everything I love about air-fried chicken – the crisp and golden skin, tender meat, and that mind-blowing aroma that fills my kitchen. All you need is 10 ingredients to create this succulent dish and 4 simple steps So what makes Peruvian-style chicken so uncommonly delicious? It’s the spice rub. Not only does it taste amazing, but the thick wet rub also creates a sensational crust that seals in juices. The result is a perfect crispy chicken that’s incredibly juicy with rich depth of flavour..
Peruvian chicken is not just another roast chicken recipe, it’s a wholly unique culinary experience, which deserves a place on your dinner menu rotation.
