Mojo Chicken

2 lbs chicken breasts, regular or cutlets.  Can also cube the chicken to make kabobs


1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper 

Lime Zest

2 TBSP fresh lime juice

1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves minced garlic

1/4 fresh chopped cilantro (2 tsp dried cilantro)

1/8 cup fresh chopped oregano (1 tsp dried oregano)

1 tsp cumin

C0mbine all ingredients.


Tenderize the chicken or use a fork and pierce all over. Thoroughly cover the chicken in the marinade.  I use a glove and take the pieces and cover in marinade.  Refridgerate and marinate at least 6 hours.  I prefer over night because it increases the flavor and tenderness of the chicken


Grill the chicken.  Serve with yellow rice, saffron rice and vegetables.
