Oven Roasted Mojo Chicken

Mojo chicken is a Cuban chicken dish where chicken is first marinated in mojo marinade (also called mojo sauce) and then cooked. Cooked mojo chicken can then be served with more fresh mojo sauce to wake up the amazing flavors. If the chicken is baked, like in this recipe, you can serve it with the delicious pan juices and more fresh mojo sauce on top. Trust me, it’s so good that you will want a lot of this delicious sauce.

Oven Roasted Mojo Chicken

Ingredients
  1. 1 whole chicken (cut into 8-10 pieces)
  2. 2 cups mojo marinade (one recipe, link below. If desired, make a little extra of the mojo sauce to serve with chicken later)
  3. 1 yellow onion (large, sliced into 1/2" rounds)
  4. 2 Tbsp Italian parsley (chopped, or cilantro)
  5. 2 limes (cut into wedges)

Instructions
  • Spread the chicken pieces in a baking dish. Pour in the mojo marinade. Rub each peace with the marinade really well, lifting skin and getting the marinade underneath. Marinate in a fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Scatter the onion slices all over the bottom of a roasting pan, then arrange the chicken pieces on top, skin side up. Pour the marinade all over the chicken pieces and onions. Roast for about 60 to 75 minutes, or until the tops a golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. Rotate the baking dish after about 40 minutes to ensure even browning.
