Posted from another bbq site

EL POLLO RESTAURANT PERUVIAN ROASTED CHICKEN

2 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. ground cumin
4 tablespoons white vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons white wine
3 tablespoons soya or canola oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 (3 to 4 pound) chicken
juice of 1 lemon, mixed with 1 quart cold
water

In medium-size bowl, mix first eight ingredients.

Wash chickens thoroughly with lemon water and remove excess fat from inside chickens. With a large carving fork, poke deep holes all over chicken, including under wings. Rub the marinade thoroughly inside and outside the chicken. Seal chicken in a large plastic bag and marinate for at least 2 hours (but preferably up to 24 hours) in refrigerator.

Remove chicken from bag and dilute marinade left behind in bag with a Tablespoon of water. (Place marinade in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer 2-3 minutes. Set aside.)

Place chicken on a rotisserie spit, and roast at medium heat for 45 to 55 minutes. If broiling, cut chicken in half lengthwise and broil for 30 to 40 minutes, basting with marinade every 10 minutes.

Wife and I ate at El Polo Loco in Puerto Vallarta in 1998 on a vacation. Some of the best chicken ever. Thank you for the recipe.

I left Ca in 1992, after 22 years, and the only thing I miss there is El Pollo Loco and El Ranchito (great margaritas). Thanks for the recipe, when we lose this white ground cover, I'm gonna try some. I think I will debone it and toss it into my home made wok. (1 - 18" disc blade bolted to a 12" disc blade.) Set it in the coals and i am cookin'.
