Our family just now enjoyed our "pollo loco". I mixed marinade ingredients in two bowls, reserving second for basting instead of marinating for 5 more minutes after cooking first 20-25 min. I left out the food coloring and only used 1/4 tsp salt for each marinade. Our meal was delicious! I served with corn tortillas, home made salsa and fresh avocados! We will definately make over and over again this summer! Thank you for sharing!

I have never liked grilled chicken because I could never seem to find a good marinade or proper cooking instructions that worked. It was very quick and easy. This is the best chicken I have ever made on a grill! Thanks so much for sharing! I also made homemade flour tortillas to put the chicken on..outstanding!

Great! I think 4 cups water is a bit too much though, I used 2 cups orange juice and 1/2 cup water. Maybe if it were going to marinade overnight it would be okay. Otherwise the garlic and citrus is the perfect combination! Very nice!
