Andrea's Recipes - Peruvian Grilled Chicken


  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 whole chicken (about 3 1/2 pounds/1.5 kilos), quartered (I use 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts on the grill pan.)
  • lime wedges


  1. MARINATE: Whisk together soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, oregano, pepper, and oil. Put chicken in a large sealable bag and add marinade. Seal the bag and marinate in the refrigerator 8 to 24 hours.
  2. Discard the marinade, then pat chicken dry.
  3. Preheat the grill pan over medium-high and add the chicken. Place the chicken pieces on the pan, cooking 7 to 10 minutes per side (less if they are boneless or very thin), turning once.
  4. Squeeze lime juice over the chicken and serve.
