    Annacia's Note:

    This marinade produces some seriously tender and delicious chicken. In Peru this seasoning is traditional for making grilled beef heart (regular anticuchos). It's wonderful for steaks too. Serve anticuchos de pollo with rice and grilled corn on the cob. This dish is made with aji panca, a mild red chile pepper with a smoky flavor common in Peruvian cooking. You can often find dried aji panca or jarred aji panca paste in specialty stores or Latin food markets.

      If you don't like garlic, move along! I've had beef heart anticuchos many times, but this is the first time I've tried it with chicken. The flavor is intense and wonderful. The crisp onions make a wonderful contrast with the tender chicken. Delicious. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen.
