  • 1 whole chicken - free range - antibiotic free (or 6 legs)

  • Lime juice (from a bottle, don't loose your time juicing real ones)

  • Ground cumin

  • Smoked paprika

  • Mexican oregano. Watch out, it's different from "mediterranean" oregano. Smell is deep, peppery, lemony. It's a must-have if you like mexican food !

  • Hot or mild chili peppers, like chili ancho, chili guajillo, chili arbol, chili chipotle.. I buy mine on https://spicetrekkers.com/boutique/epices?categorie=chiles they have a huge selection

  • Fresh coriander

  • Salt and pepper




  1. Cut the chicken into pieces

  2. In a large ziploc bag, make the marinade mixing 2/3 cup of lime juice, 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp paprika, 1tbsp mexican oregano, chile peppers, salt and pepper

  3. Marinate the chicken at least 2 hours

  4. Remove the chicken and grill it on your barbeque (we recommend setting the barbeque between medium and high and cooking for approximately 20 - 25 min)

  5. Make sure you baste the chicken with a brush dipped in the marinade each time you flip it.

  6. Once the chicken is fully cooked and plated add some fresh coriander as garnish before serving.
