In Peruvian cuisine, “pollo a la brasa” is a popular dish of spiced (and traditionally spit-roasted) chicken, paired with a deliciously creamy, spicy and tangy sauce. In this simple adaptation, we’re slathering our chicken with a rub of smoky spices and vinegar, then roasting it in the oven for succulent results. The chicken finds a perfect counterpoint in our sauce, which gets an extra kick from pickled jalapeño. In lieu of fries (the classic side), we’re serving roasted potatoes—and, for a seasonal touch, lime-dressed green beans.

6 Make the sauce & plate your dish:

While the chicken and potatoes continue to roast, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime zest, chopped cilantro, the juice of the remaining lime wedges and as much of the jalapeño as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the sauce to be; season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the roasted chicken and potatoes and dressed green beans between 2 dishes. Garnish with the whole cilantro leaves. Serve with the sauce on the side. Enjoy!
