Puerto Rican Roast Chicken
Pechos de Pollo Asado
by James Belardo

Puerto Rican cuisine may seem similar to the other Spanish Caribbean islands but it’s definitely got a signature. The Puerto Rican Adobo (dry rub) helps give roast chicken a superb flavor. We find that while it’s best to BBQ using a traditional fire pit or lump coal you can also use a skillet and oven too.

Ingredients
2-4 chicken breasts
1/2 small onion, cut in thick slices (to lay chicken on pan) – optional
2-4 cloves garlic, crushed and pressed
1-2 tbsp Zio’s Adobo (try our homemade version)
1 lime (juice)
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
Salt – to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional
Flat-leaf parsley (garnish)

Marinade
1/2-1 cup dry white wine
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 lime (juice)

Directions
1. Marinate chicken in wine and olive oil for about 30-60 minutes, in the last 10 minutes add the juice of 1 lime.

2. While the chicken is marinating use a mortar and pestle to mix the garlic, Zio’s Adobo and coconut oil.

3. Remove chicken from the marinade (save the marinade) and pat dry with paper towels.

 

4. Rub a bit of the adobo paste onto the chicken.
