Cuisine: Peruvian
Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 1 hour to marinate
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 25 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs


Aji Verde Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, thick stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the marinade, add all the ingredients to a plastic food zipper bag. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the chicken and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. 
  2. To make the sauce, put all the ingredients into a blender. Pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  3. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill to medium-high. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with the aji verde sauce.

Good recipe for the chicken, but aji are different family of pepper. Jalepeno is not an appropriate substitute. Aji Amarillo, aji panca, or even aji limon would be much better than jalapeños. Ajis are much fruitier and cannot be mimicked with jalapeños.
