Puerto Rican BBQ’d Chicken
Pollo Asador a de Puerto Rico
by James Belardo
I love exploring culture through food and since I’m part Puerto Rican, what better way than to celebrate is with a BBQ. We suggest using a smoker-style BBQ like a Kamado Joe, a Big Green Egg or other ‘coal’ BBQs although a conventional gas BBQ or oven will work well too. Keep the coals burning low’n’slow for this one (set the temp around 225F.
2-4 chicken breasts, or any part of the bird.
2-4 cloves garlic, crushed and pressed
white wine (pinot grigio)
1 Lime Juice
1 tbsp Zio’s Adobo (try our homemade version)
1 tsp salt
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) (optional)
1. Marinate chicken for up to 3 hours in olive oil and white wine.
