From the Test Kitchen

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.
