Pollo Sabroso

Pollo Sabroso (Delicious Chicken)

I saw this chicken on Gina's blog earlier this summer, and the mouthwatering photo made me want it badly.  I finally made it this past weekend, but was left a bit disappointed.  I used a package of mixed chicken pieces, and while the smaller pieces like the wings and legs were absolutely delicious (higher skin to meat ratio), the breasts were disappointing.  Despite marinating for better than 24 hours, the dry seasonings were not able to penetrate into the thick breast meat, leaving the bulk of the plain chicken, just that, plain.  I will make this again, using a package of drumsticks, but will reserve the larger pieces for 'wet" marinades.

Pollo Sabroso
adapted from Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
3 lbs. chicken pieces of choice 
1 tbs. vinegar
1 tbs. soy sauce
2 packets Sazón (in the Latin section of your grocery)
Adobo seco  (again, in the Latin section)
garlic powder
dried oregano

Place the chicken in a glass dish just large enough to accommodate it in a single layer.  Sprinkle the chicken with vinegar and soy sauce, it will be just enough to wet the surfaces.. Sprinkle generously with the adodo, garlic powder, oregano, and 1 pkt. sazón.  Using tongs, not your hands, turn over and season generously again, and use the second pkt. sazón.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Grill until cooked through and the skin is deliciously crisp.


  1. Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Take a look at my web-site Www.drnathans.Com

  2. At this time it appears like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
