I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Pollo Asado
...in your mind.

Pollo Asado



  • 1 large orange
  • 2 limes
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • Chicken - 1 whole chicken broken down, or thighs or breasts - it’s all good


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well to combine
  2. Use a knife to make small slash cuts in chicken - this will let more marinade in
  3. Put chicken into a zippered bag, add about 3/4 of the marinade (save extra for brushing after) be sure all sides are coated and refrigerate, up to 4 hours
  4. Heat grill to medium, clean & oil grill grate - put on chicken
  5. Cook, flipping often (occasionally brushing with reserved marinade) until beautifully grilled, nicely charred and chicken registers about 160 in the breast - you’re probably looking at about 25-30 minutes
