Adobo Chicken Marinade Recipe

Adobo Chicken Marinade Notes

This is a good Mexican style marinade that isn't very spicy hot with a very pleasant flavor.

I use this recipe when marinating chicken for a variety of Mexican dishes from soups to fajitas


Serves / Yields

As written - for one pound of chicken breast, adjust as needed

Preparation Instructions

Place all ingredients into a cruet and vigorously shake to create an emulsification. Pour into a large bowl, add chicken breast meat and marinade for at least 1 hour. Grill chicken to well-done (of course)

Helpful Hints

You can chop the chicken breast into small pieces and grill on skewers, or you can grill the breasts whole and then slice them after grilling - your choice. This marinade could probably even be used to pan fry ground chicken/turkey if you were so inclined.
