Pollo A La Brasa – Sassy Mama Style with #KikkomanSabor

Pollo A La Brasa #KikkomanSabor

Growing up in a Peruvian household there were 3 items that were staples in our home. I mean, you could literally find these food items at any given time, and if you didn’t, my abuelita and mom would have had a heart attack. The items were: Arroz (white rice), limón (lime) and Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Whenever my mom was stuck on what to make for dinner, she would whip something together using the 3 ingredients and a couple herbs, meat and bam! Deliciousness.

Pollo A La Brasa has been a dish I enjoyed at restaurants and at family cook outs. It is a somewhat long process, and involves rotesserie style cooking over charcoals that are cooling down, and turned on a spike for hours. Making it myself always seemed out of the question, until now! Check my recipe below and try it yourself. I paired mine with a side of Papa A La Huancaina (post coming eventually…lol)… you can pair yours with anything from rice to tortillas!

    This sounds delicious!!! And rare that I have all the ingredients for a good recipe on hand, but I do have these!

    Okay, that’s what I’M talking about! I love chicken, and I love soy sauce, too – and I think Kikkoman is the best. Kikkoman itself is from the early 1900’s, but it’s a combination of companies that go back as far the 1600’s! Great stuff. I never knew, BTW, that soy sauce was a staple of Peruvian cuisine, live and learn, right? Anyway, I’m making it this week – thanks for the recipe. (Seems easy enough, too!)
