Mayan Kitchen's Guatemalan grilled chicken marinade recipe and grilling directions (*Serving suggestions in recipe notes.)
- 1 tbsp onion, diced
- 1 tsp fresh garlic
- 1 tsp cilantro
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp red bell pepper, diced
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp chicken seasoning
- ½ whole chicken
To make the marinade, blend onions, garlic, cilantro, paprika, bell pepper, salt, and chicken seasoning.
Leave the half chicken marinating in the blended mix overnight (at least 12 hours).
Grill at a low temperature for 40-50 minutes, flipping regularly to ensure even cooking.
*Serve with charro beans, rice, and a small salad (lettuce topped with tomatoes, onions, avocado, beets, cucumbers, and a little bit of lemon juice as dressing). Now you can enjoy it with a cold and delicious horchata!
“At Mayan Kitchen, we use an authentic family recipe that includes a bone-in half chicken that is marinated and charbroiled, and we pair it with homemade charro beans and rice for a tasty Guatemalan dish.”
