Mouth-Watering Peruvian Chicken

Several years ago, a friend of my mine raved about a chicken dish in a Peruvian restaurant. She called it "crack chicken" because it was so good you just couldn't stop eating it! I ended up with a recipe, and I can't for the life of me remember whether she gave it to me or if I found it on the internet. If anyone remembers, let me know so I can give credit!

Anyway, the chicken is so delicious, I thought I'd share it with you!

This chicken is just bursting with flavor - just be careful not to overcook it or it will be too dry!
