Preparation

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except chicken, measure out 1/4 cup marinade and reserve for basting while grilling. Place chicken in a shallow glass baking dish and cover with marinade. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, turning at least once. Remove chicken from refrigerator 45 minutes before cooking time. Drain chicken and grill over medium coals for 25 to 35 minutes or until no traces of pink color remain, turning every 10 minutes. Baste frequently with the reserved 1/4 cup marinade while cooking.

El Pollo Loco is one of my favorite west coast restaurant chains. Finding this receipe for the marinade was quite a find! I used Cayenne pepper in place of mild chili pepper and it was delicious!

Excellent, 1 of the 2 El Pollo Recipes that I would personally recommend. Marinate for at least 48 hrs for the best flavor..the longer the better!
