Mexican Chicken Marinade

This easy Mexican chicken marinade makes the juiciest, most flavorful chicken breasts or thighs with cilantro, citrus, chili powder, cumin and other spices.

chili powder | ground cumin salt | dried oregano  smoked paprika  black pepper minced garlic | olive oil lime juice | orange juice cilantro | chicken

Squeeze the citrus, chop the cilantro, mince the garlic and then simply combine it all in a bowl or bag.

Whisk or stir into a marinade.

Trim excess fat off of the chicken and poke holes in each piece with the tines of a fork to let the delicious flavor of the marinade soak in.

Add the chicken to the marinade and toss to coat. 1. Marinate the chicken for at least 2 hours but preferably 8-24 hours.

I tested the Mexican marinade for chicken with various different cooking methods and it turned out great every time!
