Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken

A secret spicy and tasty rotisserie chicken.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Rinse the chicken very well, and cut off all the fat. Tuck the wings under the back of the chicken.
  2. Make a paste by mixing the garlic, huacatay, pepper, salt, aji, cumin, lemon or lime juice and achiote. Spread paste on the chicken and rub well from outside to inside.
  3. Let stand in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more, for a good flavor.
  4. Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
  5. Put the chicken in the roasting pan with lid. Cook, covered, for 1 1/2 hours, or until it is golden brown.
  6. Actually, grilling this chicken would be even better. Use charcoal or wood.
  7. Note: Huacatay, pronounced wah-kah-tye, also Peruvian black mint, is a herb used in Peruvian cuisine. The fresh leaves are ground into a paste, which is then used to add flavor to recipes. It can be found at Spanish stores.
  8. Note: Annatto is a derivative of the achiote trees of tropical regions of the Americas, used to produce a red food coloring and also as a flavoring. Its scent is described as "slightly peppery with a hint of nutmeg" and flavor as "slightly sweet and peppery. It is a major ingredient in the popular spice blend Sazón made by Goya Foods.

This is great tasting chicken but I see that several of these ingredients may be hard to find, so an alternative for the rub is http://www.peruvianrotisseriechicken.com

While probably not as good as the authentic ingredients I've read that annato can be substituted with equal parts turmeric and paprika. As for huacatay, 'Because this herb has such a special flavor, there really is no substitute, though a combination of mint and coriander comes closest.' 'To approximate the unique flavor of Huacatay, mix equal parts mint, coriander, and basil. '
