ROASTED PERUVIAN CHICKEN‏
What is roasted peruvian chicken?
Simply put, it’s the most unique and flavorful chicken you will ever taste. we start by bathing it in fresh-squeezed lime juice to keep the meat tender and juicy. Next, the skin is rubbed with our special seasoning which gives it just the right blend of sweet and spicy. we slow roast this chicken until the skin is slightly crispy and voila! The best roasted chicken you have ever tasted.
