Chicken Marinade - Ecuadorean

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Pesto lover

I rub it all over 3-4 pounds of chicken pieces, leave it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to marinate and then grill it. You could probably bake it, but I haven't tried that. You can substitute cumin for the oregano, but leave out the rosemary. You can add 2-3 serrano peppers, chopped finely, or the jarred yellow peppers from South America, if you really like heat. I have used this with steak, but I add 1 tsp thyme for that. This does not store well, so make it the day you will use it.

I read the note about throwing it all in the food processor too late. I'll do that next time.... much faster! This is really tasty!

  1. Mix all ingredients and use as marinade. You can also just throw it all into the food processor or a blender to puree it.
