Chicken Anticuchos

From: Sushi Samba, all locations. Yield: 4-6 servings (2-3 skewers per serving).

1 cup aji amarillo (yellow aji pepper from South America)

1 lb. chicken breasts

8-12 skewers

3 cobs Peruvian corn

3 scallions, chopped

1 Tbsp. butter

1 Tbsp. sesame seeds

2 Tbsp. scallion, chopped

Cut chicken breasts into 1" cubes. Soak wooden skewers in water for about 1 hour. Skewer about 4 cubes of chicken onto each skewer. Marinate chicken skewers in aji amarillo for about 3 hours.

After chicken has been marinated for 3 hours, steam the Peruvian corn and cut it off the cob. In a saute pan, heat a little butter with the scallions; add Peruvian corn and a dash of sea salt. Saute lightly.

Grill the chicken skewers. Place about ½ cup of Peruvian corn in center of the plate. Place grilled chicken skewers (2-3 per serving) across the corn. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped scallion.
