Mojo Chicken

This Cuban-inspired chicken dish is a great way to prepare bone-in chicken breasts, which are typically cheaper than boneless chicken breasts.  Serve with yellow rice.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 bone-in chicken halves, skin removed

What you’ll do:

  • Combine the juice, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, paprika, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes in a large plastic bag.
  • Add the chicken, seal and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 3 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place the chicken in a 13 x 9 baking dish that is coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake, covered, for 20 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake for 25 more minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
