How to make it

  • Pollo Asado
  • In large pot, season chicken with garlic and onion, salt, oregano, cumin.
  • Pinch chicken with fork to allow seasoning to sit well.
  • Add 1/4 cup of mojo to chicken, stir and let marinate for one hour to 90 minutes.
  • In same pot, lightly fry chicken breast in vegetable oil until both sides have browned, for 6-7 minutes.
  • Add remainder of mojo and squeeze lemon wedge.
  • Bring heat down to medium-low, cover and let cook for another 30 minutes.
  • If you find your chicken too dry, you can add 1/2 cup of dry white cooking wine. Steam from pot will create the excess mojo sauce.
  • Serves 3
  • Rice
  • In rice cooker, add rice and water to pot.
  • Add sofrito, mixed vegetables (frozen or fresh), packet of Sazon seasoning, salt, and oil.
  • Stir and click on cook! Should be done in about 20 minutes.
  • When cooker chimes, let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Fork and comb through rice, lifting the grain.
  • Allow to sit for another 5 minutes. Yields enough for 7.
  • Sofrito
  • In light oil, sautee onion, garlic, green onion (scallion) green pepper and tomato on medium heat, allowing onions to cook down.

    I would love to try this-sounds wonderful. Any suggestions as to what kind of market I would need to find in order to get the mojo criollo or the Sazon seasonings? Or any suggestions on the type of spices I would need to make my own? I wish you were here to cook this...***GRIN***.

    This DOES sound devine (and it looks fab, too!) I'm working my way through some of the ingredients (we may not be able to get some of them in the Great White North LOL! - but that won't stop me) Yep, I'd buy your Latin fusion cookbook :)
