I’m an eclectic cook and love all types of food…. Italian, Chinese, Greek, Mexican and one of my all time favourites CUBAN. 

Now ever since I watched the movie Chef with Jon Favreau and John Leguizamo I’ve wanted to do Mojo Pork and use it to make a true Cuban sandwich however as time was little limited today I took their inspiration and instead did Mojo Chicken and it was outta sight.

Here’s how we do this one.

Shopping list:

  • 12 boneless, skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1/4 extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Lime Juice
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Cilantro
  • 6 Garlic cloves
  • 6 Mint leaves – rough chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • Sea Salt and Ground Pepper

Putting it all together:

  1. Place the chicken thighs in a seal-able bag and set aside.
  2. In a blender mix all the remaining ingredients and blend until just smooth.
  3. Pour the liquid ingredients over the chicken, mix well and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  4. Heat the BBQ to 375° and grill the chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165°.
  5. Serve right away with your favourite side.

There you have it another “Simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”

Until next time…….
