El Pollo Loco-style

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken, cut into pieces (leave skin on)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Preparation:

Briefly simmer the cut-up chicken in a deep-sided skillet, keeping the pieces in a single layer without crowding them, until the meat appears milky white and the juices run clear, no longer pink. Allow to cool in the broth, uncovered, while you prepare the basting sauce.

Arrange the chicken pieces skin-side up on broiler pan in single layer and baste with enough of mixture to evenly coat skin side. Turn and baste the other side. Turn skin side up and broil 6 inches from the heat source, brushing with additional sauce every few minutes until skin is very crispy and golden brown, approximately 5 to 8 minutes for large pieces.

Basting Sauce Ingredients; mix juices, oil, turmeric, salt and pepper. This makes enough to baste nine pieces.
