Default Peruvian Chicken on Frankenstein Grill

If you’ve never tried grilling Peruvian chicken with green sauce, give it a shot. Some of the best chicken you will ever eat.

I have adapted recipes from these two sites, leaving out the beer and lime since I find it makes it harder to crisp up the skin. Also I use Steven Raichlen’s tip for using annatto oil (1 TBL in marindade and reserve some for basting). Gives chicken beautiful color and bit of added flavor too.

Make a few slashes in the chicken to make it easier for marindade to penetrate (under skin too on the chicken breasts). These were parts so only marinaded for 4-5 hours which was plenty.

Used my bucket-of-bolts Frankenstein grill since I like to cook chicken high above coals (12” to 15”) and let that fat deliciousness drip down. Temps around 350-425 to render fat under skin.

Serve with French fries (dip in the green sauce!) and avacado salad.

Hah! Frankenstein grill was one of the dumber things I’ve done. Tried to build it without any welding. Had to drill over 200 holes for bolts. Took an enternity.

Nothing about this matters as much as that green sauce. There is no substitute. It will make shoe leather taste good. The green sauce.

The f'n green sauce!

Chicken looks great, but how about some more pictures and features about the Frankenstein grill? I'm always interested in self-designed grills...

Completely agree. The stuff is addictive. The Serious Eats recipe above is closest I’ve had to matching sauce at restaurant called Pio Pio back East. I do knock down the number of jalapeños for the kiddies from the recipe.

I should probably do seperate post. Some good concepts, but lots of mistakes too. Maybe people can learn from my foolish errors
