After having this roast chicken it’s a struggle to have it any other way. It’s delicious and made me love roast chicken again.

I have lived in Ayacucho, Peru, where “Pollo a la Brasa” is the specialty, and this recipe is very close to authentic Peruvian cuisine.

Omg this was sooo great. All the flavors just came together so well, my boyfriend almost cried after the first bite. He was here from start to finish of me cooking it and had the nerve to say I didn’t make it. He is such a hater. Lol

This is a great recipe. I have made it a few times as directed (no changes needed). My husband and I have made several trips to Peru and love "Pollo Abrassa," as it is called. The green sauce is just as the locals make. The chickens are cooked outside, typically, but the idea and seasonings are the same.

Loved this! Reminds us of a place we visited often when we lived in NYC called Pio Pio in Jackson Heights (Queens). We aren't in NYC anymore but this brought it home. Served with beans and rice, homemade flour tortillas and homemade Sangria. Was an AWESOME meal!!

Skin was a little dry and not as greasy as it normally is from a restaurant... But I guess that's a good thing?!
