i'd like to replicate the crispy, tasty spit-roasted chicken they sell in those peruvian chicken joints. These places are really popular in and the washington dc area. Any inputs?


  • mark,[p]I'm pretty sure there was a discussion on this last year. Search the archives.[p]Are you in the DC area? I live in College Park and work in Columbia, and there are a few others on the forum around here.[p]-Steve

    I was also gonna ask if Mark was from the DC area. We have one of those peruvian places up the street, though I haven't had their chickens. My spice book doesn't mention Peru, so I don't even have a guess how they season it. Last year's archives are history I believe.[p]Cheers!

    Sorry,i meant "your"

  • mark,[p] Yup, lots of us Eggers in the DC area. We should probably schedule an informal fall get-together or something. Anyway, I found a cleaner version of the recipe YB found:[p]<font size="+2"><a href=""><font color="#008040">Peruvian
    Chicken Recipe </font></a></font> [p]Also, the Washington Post ran an article in the Metro section about the places around the end of July. Don't think there were any recipes, but there might be a few clues about preparation in there. Search their archives. I've got a cookbook at home that might have something, too. I'll check later today.[p]MikeO

    BluesnBBQ,[p]Yes, I live in Arlington, and work in Tysons. I actually used to live in Columbia until a few years ago. I'm new to the forum, and new to the egg, but it does seem like alot of folks that contribute are in the DC/Baltimore region....[p]Mark

    MikeO,[p]Thanks for your help, and yes, it does seem like the dc area has alot of eggers. I did read the Wash Post article you referred to, and the only mention of recipe was 3 ingredients: Salt, Pepper, and Lime juice. I'll try out this recipe and we'll see how it compares to places in the Arlington area like "El Pollo Rico"...[p]Thanks again!
