Easy and quick Pollo a la Brasa Recipe (Peruvian Grill Chiken)

Grilled Chicken is a new dish in Peruvian gastronomy. The date of creation dates from 1950, in an area of Lima called Santa Clara. The Swiss immigrant Roger Schuler, observed the preparation techniques of the Peruvian roast chicken and then created a
original recipe with a different mechanism to cook the chicken.

That's right, he managed to design a mechanism with the help of his great friend Franz Ulrich. A metal mechanic specialist made possible the creation of a rotisserie with an octagonal system. This had bars that rotated on the embers. Chickens macerated with Roger Schuler's recipe were placed in these bars.

Thus, they were evenly baked and more than 30 chickens could be baked at a time. Depending on the size of the oven. Try this amazing recipe at home and enjoy with your family an friends:
