  • No-Antibiotic Poultry
Peru is famous for its wonderful combination of culinary influences: Chinese, Japanese, indigenous Peruvian, and Spanish. Saltado is a dish that combines the rich flavors of all three. It's a all natural chicken stir-fry, combined with French fries, tomatoes, red onions, yellow aji chile paste, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and a rich cilantro and garlic sauce. It may sounds a bit crazy, but all those flavor are utterly delicious together. Munchery sources poultry raised without antibiotics—it’s better for the birds and it’s better for you. We’re excited to feature poultry from Mary’s Chickens in this dish.

This looked like a very basic chicken and rice dish, with the interesting addition of French fries. But the sauce! Man, that sauce is EVERYTHING! Incredible flavor!

This is great!!! Loved the flavors and the chile sauce. Only drawback is the dark meat. Some people love it.. I don't. But I will keep ordering this!!
5 Stars
So delicious and inventive! I've never heard of this preparation before and it's great that you can get all these meals that can't be found at restaurants and also not in your cooking repertoire

This had the best flavor and I love that it has French fries in it. My favorite item to date! Let my boyfriend taste it too and he says five stars. So delicious!

Rather Bland. I question the 500 calorie count, as the portion of rice was most likely 250-300 calories alone

2 small pieces of chicken. Small piece of onion. Not a good item.

The one munchery disappointment. Salty. Fishy.

First time I didn't want to eat a meal. Chicken thighs grossed me out and I didn't care for the flavors of the dish either.
3 Stars
Did not look like the picture. Needed more chicken.

Chicken saltado should not be spicy. (That's why the aji goes on the side) Please keep traditional meals original

Great. Very unique and tasty. The pesto like dressing is outstanding.

The cuts of chicken were too fatty

Rice was hard.

Our order was missing the green sauce described and pictured (unless it was already mixed in? But it tasted like something was missing.)
3 Stars
A surprising combo of ingredients that works! The cilantro sauce (it has a kick to it) really brings it all together. I do wish the dish itself has more sauce to coat the rice—as the rice feels bland and dry. (try pairing with coconut rice?)

Boner-inducing

So, so good! Love the aji chile sauce so much. Wish this was always on the menu.
4 Stars
Loved it. I would prefer white meat chicken.
5 Stars
Great portion size! I can definitely make 2 meals out of this. And the flavor is excellent. Makes me want to go back to Peru! I had to cook it 10 more min than the instructions listed in the oven to get it warned all the way through, but that's ok.

This is a great dish! Hope you keep it a regular item!

This was SO DELICIOUS. One of the tastiest things I have ever eaten. The green sauce was like the chutneys I grew up eating, but even better. Only 500 calories! Please, Munchery bring this back soon.

Very tasty but I didn't like the French fries! They had little taste & were soggy. I just took them out and ate the dinner which was hearty & good.
