    'tis I's Note:

    This is NOT an El Pollo Loco "copycat" recipe. It's a similar, not exact flavor. This is generally enough for six bone-in, skin on chicken thighs. Cooking time is an estimate of grilling time (depending upon protein you're grilling) plus MINIMUM marinating time, so plan ahead if you want to marinate longer or need more grilling time.

      I marinated 8 drumsticks for an hour and a half and turned the bag several times. I was disappointed as I thought the citrus flavor would be more prominent. I don't know if longer marination would improve things or a reduction in oil would be more beneficial. I'm glad I tried the recipe though so thank you for sharing the recipe!
