How to Make Mojo Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Mojo sauce: Heat oil in a deep sauce pan over medium heat. Add the garlic & cook until fragrant & pale golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Do not let garlic brown too much, it will become bitter.
    Stir in the sour orange juice, water, & dried spices. Sauce may spatter so be careful. Bring to a rolling boil, taste for seasonings adding salt & pepper as needed. Let Cool to room temp, then stir in fresh cilantro. (If not using sauce right away, transfer to a jar with tight fitting lid, store in fridge and shake well before serving).
  2. Pour mojo sauce over chicken pieces and marinate in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Drain excess sauce and add garlic, salt and pepper. Bake at 325 until chicken is done.
    Serve with rice (I save out a little sauce before marinating the chicken to pour over the rice).
