Piernitas de Pollo Marinadas y Elote, It's what's for Dinner 2!


Recommended Posts

I shop at a local Mexican Market nearly every week. I've purchased this chicken there a few times and it’s really tasty but has very little heat to it.

I recreated here with just a little heat to spice it up. Here are most of the ingredients for the marinate I used:

And here is the recipe:

1 tbsp. Granulated onion

1 tbsp. Ground pepper

1 tbsp. Salt

1 tbsp. Paprika

1 tsp. Ground ginger

1/2  tsp. Achiote powder

1/2  tsp. Cayenne Pepper

1/2  tsp. Chipotle Pepper

4 cloves garlic (Minced)

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp. EVOO

1 tbsp. Malt vinegar

1 tbsp. Catsup

And some raw onion and cilantro and the end.

I mixed everything up in a large bowl

and dumped in the chicken legs and 2 thighs

and mixed it all up for even covered.

Bagged it up with some onion and cilantro for a rest before grilling.

Now on the grill with some corn on the cob.

After 10 minutes I flipped everything.

After it was up to temp I plated it up with some elote, a nice cerveza and some fruit that the wife insisted I include.

I'm glad you weren't heavy handed with the spices. Not sure of cooking process. Did you use a direct flame?

Ahhh, a DH mexican cook fully documented with excellent photos. Fine job, Sir. Looks very very  tasty. Used to visit a Mexican market when we lived in Cali, to but meat cut for Carne Asada. Great stuff. 

Thank you keeper. There's a lot of pre-made / pre-marinated food I buy at the market. I've showed some of it being cooked, like this chicken before. I usually just cook it with-out pics as the whole reason for buying it pre-marinated was to save the time.

Thank you parisbrownep. Yes it was direct grilling. Took around 25 minutes from start to finish.
