The Recipe: Mojo Chicken
The Nitty Gritty: This recipe comes from Michelle Tam at Nom Nom Paleo (Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nomnompaleo ). I’ve followed Michelle for YEARS (I was paleo for a few years before going keto) and have always enjoyed her recipes. She has several cookbooks and videos, and her website goes into detail on every recipe. Don’t be fooled by the name of the site – she’s added tags to all of her keto-friendly recipes to make them easy to find!
This recipe required a little bit of planning because the chicken needs to marinate for at least one hour (and up to a day). I had every intention of getting mine in the marinade the night before cooking, but I forgot! Luckily I remembered first thing the following morning, so my chicken got to bathe in deliciousness for a solid 8 hours before meeting the grill. I would definitely recommend at least 8 hours for the marinade – next time I’ll let mine go overnight!
The Bottom Line: This recipe is absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again. The citrus flavors are bright and it was seasoned perfectly. As long as I remember to marinate the night before, this would be a great weeknight dish!
