Mojo Chicken – Pollo Asado
Literally translated, polo asado means barbecued or grilled (and sometimes even roasted) chicken, though it appears that it most often refers to chicken that is soaked in a mojo-style marinade and cooked on a grill. It's another one of those roadside/food truck favorites, in the same camp with the vinegar chicken I shared recently.
In this case I'm using a homemade mojo marinade in place of a commonly used commercial sour orange product, which not only is next to impossible to find here on the Mississippi coast, but also tends to contain additional sugars and preservatives you may not want.
