9th Day of 31 Days Beading and Peruvian cuisine recipes..Today POLLO A LA BRASA..one of the best..
POLLO A LA BRASA By: Blanca Medina
1 whole chicken
1/2 medium bottle of malt (black beer without alcohol), you can found it in the supermarkets of Dominican bodegas.
2 spoons of soy sauce
2 spoons of white vinegar.
1/2 teaspoon of grounded cumin.
1/2 teaspoon of paprika.
1/2 teaspoon of ground blag pepper.
The juice of 1 lemon
3 garlic cloves , chopped and make a paste.
2 fresh Rosemary leaves chopped
Lest go cook!:
In a deep bowl, put water, enough to cover the chicken and 1/2 of a cup of salt..yes..right ..I said ...1/2 of a cup of salt, Mix well and add the chicken in this salty water to soak for about 20 minutes .
The chicken has to be open in the back if will be in the oven o a whole if will be in the special stick in the fire .
After 20 minutes take out the chicken from salty water and rinse very fast with clean and fresh water, let it drain the water in a colander...
In another bowl put the rest of the ingredients and mix well, put the chicken to macerate in his back. After 15 minutes, turn it to the other side and let it macerate for another 15 minutes. In total the chicken has to macerate for 1/2 an hour . The pollo a la brasa never has to macerate for more than 1/2 an hour...because if not...the salt of the soy sauce will cook the chicken.., ...
When you put it in the oven you can add a little more salt, but for me..no need it, because the soy sauce is very salty.....
Take it to the oven in 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, turn it around and leave it for another 25 more minutes (total 50 minutes).
Serve with french fries, and salad of tomato, lettuce and red onion... ENJOY.
Note.- Please be careful with the oven, because no all the ovens work the same.Look normal bake in the oven is 350 Fahrenheit, but this is 400 degrees.. a little more..
