The moment I took a bite of Peruvian Grilled Chicken, it reminded me so much of the Nandos Chicken which I had as my last birthday treat with my family. It also stands close to the Peri Peri Grilled Chicken which I had posted long back.

You can find a fusion of ingredients used in the marinade from American and Asian cuisine, yet sustains the simplicity in the recipe and making it the easiest and no fuss dish. This is what I have perceived in my years of blogging experience that the simplest and easiest recipes are the most popular ones. The moment I saw this recipe on my favorite site Thecafesucrefarine I just couldn't wait to try it out myself.

Peruvian Cuisine - Apart from taking inspiration from Incas, Peruvian Cuisine is highly influenced by Italy, Spain, Japan, and China. The ingredient which dominates the most is the red chili pepper. Basting the chicken with marinade while cooking is what makes it different from other grilled kababs. And also it is very important to marinade the chicken for at least 1 hour and more the better.

Peruvian Grilled Chicken is the best option in case if you are bored of the usual chicken tikka in Indian style. I like the mild sweetness from brown sugar along with the heat from peppers and the piquant flavor of Asian ingredients. It can be served with any flavored rice, or as a stuffing for sandwiches and wraps, the choice is all yours.
