    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.

      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.
