Peruvian Chicken with Spicy Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Sackville

An all-in-one dish to tempt your tastebuds. The originaly recipe calls for frying the chicken, to give it a golden skin, but you could also try crisping it in the oven, to cut the fat.

Delicious!! I made this for my visiting parents, and I used a habanero from my garden, this was so good it was spicy but not over the top, I used a very dark hoppy beer, cuz thats what my husband drinks so it's all I had and it was just fantastic! This is one of my new favorite dishes, thanks so much!! I LOVE this!
