Peruvian Green Sauce has bold flavor with a sweet, spicy, clean and herb-y profile. Serve alongside many of your favorite foods, to amp up their flavor. Simply SatedThe Peruvian Green Sauce hitched to the roasted chicken is divine.  I mean it – divine, in the purest #2, informal dictionary definition of the word which is “excellent; delightful”!

On second thought, Peruvian Chicken with Green Sauce might best be described by the #1 dictionary definition of  the word, “divine” which is, “of, from, or like a god.”  My thoughts aren’t blasphemous…they come from knowledge and they are pure.

Peruvian Chicken with Green Sauce is divine!  I KNOW you will love it.

Ingredients

  • For the Chicken:
  • 6 4 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or skin-on chicken breasts (or use thin chicken strips for chicken skewers)
  • For the Marinade/basting sauce:
  • 3 medium cloves garlic minced
  • 1 fresh jalapeno ribs & seeds removed, diced
  • teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder I prefer Penzey’s Chili 3000
  • ¼-½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh limejuice juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden Ginger Stir-In Paste or minced fresh ginger minced

Instructions

  1. For the Marinade:
  2. Combine all marinade ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until well combined. *Reserve & refrigerate ¼ cup to use as marinade when ready to cook the chicken.
  3. For the Peruvian Chicken:
  4. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag and use a meat pounder or rolling pin to pound the breasts into an even thickness. Pour all except ¼ cup marinade over the chicken. Squeeze out any air, close the bag and place in the fridge to marinate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  5. When ready to cook the chicken, preheat the oven to 375F and spray a shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
  6. Place the chicken in the prepared dish and cook 15 minutes. Brush the chicken with the reserved marinade, and cook another 15 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 160 on a meat thermometer. Remove the chicken from the oven, cover loosely with foil and allow the chicken to rest 5 minutes.
  7. When ready to serve, drizzle the chicken with Peruvian Green Sauce.
  8. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This recipe works beautifully grilled. Just cook the marinated chicken on a grill, marinate per instructions, and cook until the internal temperature is 160°F.

    What do you usually serve this with?
      Susie Gall
      Hello Susan, Thank you for asking and for visiting Simply Sated. Since the green sauce has a sweetness to it, I keep the sides simple and fresh. Usually I serve a crispy green salad with fresh tomatoes, roasted potatoes and/or roasted vegetables. Enjoy!

      Hello Connie, I love Peruvian Chicken & Green Sauce with a side of salad and roast potatoes and/or roasted vegetables. The green sauce has a touch of sweetness, so it is nice to have simple sides that aren't sweet. Thanks so much - I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Susie,I'm unsure what I did wrong as I followed the recipe exactly but my sauce ended up brown. I think the soy sauce did this. I'm hoping it still tastes the same. I'll leave it for a few hours to infuse then try it. Thanks
      Susie Gall
      Hello Julie, The marinade has soy sauce, but the Peruvian Green Sauce does not. The marinade is a brownish color. I'm sorry about the confusion. The link for the Peruvian Green Sauce is in the post right above the photo of the green sauce. It is found here, also...http://www.simplysated.com/peruvian-green-sauce/ Thanks so much - please try the recipe again - it is a keeper!!

    SO GLAD TO SEE YOU BACK!! i come to this site about every other day along with others and to see you not post for so long was worrisome. love to see these recipes!
    Emre
    good recipe , thanks (specially for the green sauce) . Would boneless thigh work instead of breast ?
      Susie Gall
      Hello and thank you, Emre. Yes, of course, chicken thighs work beautifully in this recipe. Just be sure to add 7-10 minutes cooking time since chicken dark meat takes longer to cook than white meat. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by. Susie
