Yeni's chicken with marinade

Yeni’s chicken with marinade

This delicious recipe is made with the Naranja Agria, a small bitter orange used in Latin American cooking – perfect for marinating meats. We enjoyed Yeni’s version at our homestay in Soroa, Cuba. She prepared marinated chicken for us, along with plate after plate of delicious food.

  • 10-12 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 3/4 cup Naranja Agria (or substitute 2 parts lemon to 1 part orange juice)

Place garlic in food processor, and bring to a rough chop. Add cilantro, oregano and cumin, then blend on medium speed. Add salt and pepper to taste, then place mixture into a bowl filled with olive oil and Naranja Agria. Whisk until completely blended

Marinate meat, or simply spoon over meat while cooking.
