Pollo Asado – Marinated Chicken


4           Chicken Breast (I use thin sliced)
1/2 t      Ground Black Pepper
1/4 c      Pineapple Juice or any citrus juice
2 t          Ground Cumin
2 t          White Vinegar
1/4 c      Olive Oil
1/2 c      Onion, diced large
1 t          Sea Salt
2            Garlic Cloves
1 t          Dried Red Pepper Flakes
1 t          Dried Cilantro


Pour all ingredients except chicken in the blender.
Blend well.
Place chicken in Ziploc freezer bag.
Pour marinade over chicken.
Seal and place flat in the fridge for 2-14 hours.
Grill breast on Traegar or BBQ.  (about 15-20 minutes depending on thickness)

I sliced the chicken after letting it set about 5 minutes for tacos.  Will be multiplying the recipe in the future keeping some in the freezer ready to thaw and grill.
