    canarygirl's Note:

    This is another popular way chicken is served in the Canary Islands. Each bar has their own recipe, but the basics are the same. Of course I have a cookbook that is solely variations of "mojo" sauce in the Canaries...that will give you an idea of how much variation there is for "mojo!" I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we do! Prep time does not include marinating time, so be sure to allow for that.

    1. 1
      Using a mortar and pestle, mash garlic and salt until creamy.
    2. 2
      Add cayenne peppers and cumin seeds and continue to mash.
    3. 3
      Add paprika and mix.
    4. 4
      Add oil and mix, then add vinegar and mix again.
    5. 5
      Marinate chicken for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator.
    6. 6
      (I have made the recipe until this point and frozen the raw chicken-- when you thaw it, it will be even tastier than marinating in the fridge, after thawing, prepare as follows) Heat a small amount of oil over medium high heat.
    7. 7
      Fry chicken pieces until cooked through-- for bone-in, about 20 minutes or so, for boneless skinless breasts, about 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      May also be done on the grill.

      We've had Pollo en Mojo many times in the Canary Islands, but this was one of the best. I didn't change a thing, it was delicious, easy and quick, too. It will be a regular now for us and will cook one, freeze one next time.

      Wow! I used 2 bone-in chicken boobs and marinated it for about 6 hours with the whole recipe of mojo. I slipped some under the skin as well. I baked the chicken for about 55 minutes at 350 and it was fabulous. Spicy, moist and wonderful.
