"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."
"Great stuff. I use it all the time now. Kids love it."
"What a great recipe NWG. We really enjoyed this tasty chicken, it was tender, moist and oh so flavorful. I marinaded the huge chicken breasts for 12 hours and bbq them for a lovely dinner. The skin was pretty dark, but tasted incredible. Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy long after this tour is over. Made for ZWT7 (Witchin Kitchen) for my teammate Annacia's S/C America Challenge."
"I made half the marinade and marinated 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts overnight. They were so yummy. Thanks NorthwestGal :) Made for Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7"
"Lovely flavor from the wonderful spices and garlic! I allowed a couple of pounds of chicken tenders to sit for 24 hours in this yummy marinade and then tossed them on the charcoal grill. The tenders came off the grill with intense, but not at all overpowering Latin American flavor! This will definitely go into our regular summer grilling rotation. Next time I plan to try a whole chicken (or at least bone-in breasts."
"I had this all marinated and ready to cook for DH before I left for work. He cooked it using the oven method. The chicken was very flavorful and delicious (I had some cold when I got home from work). Thank you for sharing. I'm looking forward to trying this on the grill once it gets warm outside."
