    From Bon Appetit Does not include marinating time. Soy sauce was brought to peru by Chinese and Japanese traders and has become integrated into their cuisine.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Marinate chicken:.
    2. 2
      Blend soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and oil in a blender.
    3. 3
      Put chicken in a large sealable bag and add marinade. Seal bag and marinate, chilled, 8 to 24 hours.
    4. 4
      Grill chicken:.
    5. 5
      If using a charcoal grill, open vents on bottom and lid of grill. Light a large chimney starter full of charcoal (preferably hardwood). When coals are lit, dump them out along opposite sides of bottom rack, leaving a space free of coals (the size of the quartered chicken) in middle. When you can hold your hand 5 inches above the grill rack directly over coals for 3 to 4 seconds, coals will be medium-hot.
    6. 6
      If using a gas grill, preheat all burners on high, then reduce heat to medium-high.
    7. 7
      Discard marinade, then pat chicken dry. Oil grill rack, then grill chicken over area with no coals (or over a turned-off burner), skin side down first, covered, turning over once, until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes (add charcoal to maintain heat).
    8. 8
      note: If you aren't able to grill outdoors, chicken (quartered) can be roasted in middle of a 500°F oven in a 13- by 9-inch roasting pan with 1 cup water 30 minutes, then tented with foil and roasted until browned and cooked through, about 15 minutes more.

      Very tasty chicken! I used 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts that were on the large side so I doubled the marinade and kept in the fridge overnight. DH grilled outside and the chicken smelled so good while cooking. Moist and tender chicken with a spicy flavor but not hot spicy. Made and reviewed for the 2014 Culinary Quest - Cruisin' Culinary Queens.

      Instead of using chicken pieces we went with boneless chicken breast skewers. I marinated the chicken for 3 hours. Turned out Great! I really didn't think my DH would like it as much as he did. He wants this as our go-to recipe for chicken fajitas and wraps. I really liked the lime/cumin flavor. Made for CQ 2014
