  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry, Mexican

 Ingredients List

  • Jim Vorheis
  • 2 1/2 lb large chicken pieces,
  • -with the skin attached
  • 2 Garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 sm White onion, roughly sliced
  • 1 c Reduced chicken broth
  • 12 Additional garlic cloves,
  • -peeled and minced
  • 3 tb Dried Oaxacan or Mexican
  • -oregano, stems removed
  • And roughly crumbled
  • 2 tb Additional chicken broth
  • 1/2 ts Sea salt (or to taste)
  • Melted chicken fat or
  • -oil for broiling


Put the chicken pieces into a saute pan in one layer. Add the whole garlic
cloves, onion, and 1 cup chicken broth and cook, covered, over medium heat,
turning the pieces over from time to time, until the broth has completely
reduced and the chicken is tender - about 25 minutes.

Crush the minced garlic into a mortar with the oregano, 2 tablespoons
broth, and salt and work to a rough paste (or put it all into a blender jar
and blend very briefly). Spread the paste over the chicken pieces, turning
them so they ar evenly covered; return to the pan and cover. Set aside to
season for 2 hours. Heat a broiler or grill and brown lightly, brushing
with a little melted chicken fat if necessary.
