Pollo Asada is grilled marinated chicken. I use a similar marinade for my carne asada. I add a bit of orange and lime juice here. I learned this recipe from the chef at a restaurant in Bonita, California when I waited tables there as a kid. It’s perfect by itself or in tacos, burritos, or tortas.

Combine all the marinade ingredients and add chicken. Marinade for at least 30 minutes or overnight. Grill chicken over high heat for 3-4 minutes per side or until fully cooked.
