Marinaded and grilled chicken tacos

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.
