Mojo Chicken


Last weekend, my mother in law bought a mojo flavored rotisserie chicken at the grocery store.  Scott and I really liked the flavors in it so I started searching for a recipe that I could make myself. I found this marinade recipe. I marinated chicken thighs and strips overnight and then roasted them at 425 degrees. It really tasted nothing like the chicken that we had last week. And it didn’t have as much flavor as I expected it to after marinating for so many hours. But, it was still pretty good. I had to add a bit more salt to it after it was cooked. I am interested in trying this again with fish.

  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onion

  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™) (optional)
