Mojo Chicken

Mojo chicken is full of flavor thanks to orange, lime, jalapeno, and cilantro, blended together in a marinade! Make it sous vide or cook it in the oven and serve with rice and beans.


– Zest of 1 orange – Juice of 1 orange – Zest of 2 limes – Juice of 2 limes – 1 jalapeno, use 2 if you really like spice – 1/3 cup cilantro – 5 garlic cloves – 2 tbsp olive oil – 2 tsp salt – 1/2 tsp black pepper – 1 tsp ground oregano – 1 tsp ground cumin – 4 bone in, skin on chicken thighs – 4 chicken drumsticks

Add all ingredients except chicken to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Add the blended marinade and chicken to a zipper top bag or use a chamber vacuum sealer to vacuum seal closed. Let marinate for at least 3 hours, up to overnight.

Preheat water bath to 155 degrees F using your immersion circulator.

Add the bag of chicken (after marinating) to the preheated water bath and cook for 1 1/2 to 3 hours. I recommend 2.

Remove the bag from the water bath and the chicken from the marinade. Pan sear in a little olive oil or broil to brown and crisp the skin.
