    NorthwestGal's Note:

    This is a regional dish from Peru that I found on Epicurious. Many versions of this recipe abound, though soy sauce is the common ingredient in all of them. The title suggests it's grilled, but this dish can be oven roasted, too. But please plan accordingly though, as the chicken needs to marinate for 8 to 24 hours.

      Another 5 star recipe from you, NWG!!! We really enjoyed these chicken quarters!! I made it as written, using two chicken quarters, didn't bother to way them. DH then cooked them on the grill and basted them a couple of times during the beginning of grilling. I served these with rice, green beans and rolls. Thanks for sharing another winning recipe. Made for your win in the football pool!!! Congrats!!!!

      Close, but not quite as good as my local Peruvian place. Smells just like it, but flavor not permeated through meat, as there's is. Maybe I should have marinated it longer. I did about 6 - 7 hours. Also, I missed the little sauce packet.

      I didn't lie to the family-but I didn't volunteer to them that this wasn't from our favorite Peruvian chicken place until they were half-finished and wanted to know where the usual little sauce containers were. 'Nuff said. Marinated for 24 hours after piercing the pieces with a fork.
