“This is awesome served with the Aji Verde Sauce......I found a stand that allows you to cook the chicken upright. It is used for making beer can chicken, however I soak wood chips in water for an hour and place them in the center of the stand instead of the beer can. This gives the chicken more of a rotisserie style finish and comes out tasting even better.”
