This lemon and spiced roast chicken is my take on the mouth watering and totally addicting Pollo a la Brasa, a dish that's popular in Peruvian restaurants.
There are three things that make this lemon roast chicken outstanding:
- The marinade AND letting the chicken hang out in it for at least 6 hours.
- The cilantro dressing (even better when you make it a day ahead!)
- Spatchcocking -- it's hard to say, but really easy to do! (and cuts down on cooking time which is always a win!
If you want to grill the chicken, grill away, my friend!! Grilling over charcoal or gas would add a really delicious charred flavor that would make the chicken finger licking good!
Literally, this lemon roast chicken with cilantro dressing is exactly the dish you need to make if you're bored out of your mind with the same old boring roast chicken you make every weekend.
