PERUVIAN CHICKEN

Here we have the famous Peruvian Chicken
by Melissa Clark/NYTimes which I made on Saturday. A whole roasted chicken is one of the most satisfying dishes.

I should mention that I didn‘t make her cilantro&feta dip or sauce which is part of the recipe, instead used a very good ready-made Guacamole. On the countryside I am always a bit lazy. Next time, as I read very high praise about this dip.

Here the ingredients for the dip:

1 cup cilantro leaves and tender stems
3 to 4 jalapeños, seeded and diced
¼ cup/1 ounce crumbled feta cheese
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 ½ tablespoons lime juice, more to taste
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or basil
¾ teaspoon fine sea salt, more to taste
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ tablespoon aji amarillo or other chile paste (see headnote)
½ teaspoon honey
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Lime wedges, for garnish

Martin, next time try the Serious Eats recipe and see how it compares.

Also, never seen the cilantro sauce be made with feta or mustard. Odd.

I thought Peruvian chicken was guinea pig.

Kenji's version is amazing. We've made that one several times.
