I seem to have a distinct memory of reading an issue of 'GQ' magazine that mentioned our very own Arlington, VA as the unofficial destination for Peruvian chicken. Featured in said article was a recipe from Todd English, detailing various ingredients (many available at Latin markets) which could lead the home cook to replicate the Peruvian chicken experience.
I know, I know...considering that I live in Ballston, and have numerous pollo dispensaries at my disposal, it seems slightly absurd to obsess over replicating this at home. However, my strong will and determination to scour for obscure ingredients (for something I can purchase with minimal hassle) simply won't allow me to let this go.
So...if anyone has the recipe I mentioned, or has a recipe of their own that replicates El Pollo Rico, Super Pollo, Crisp & Juicy, etc....by all means, please post.
