18 Recipe Help
juice of 2 limes
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 split chicken breasts (about 2 lb)
2 tablespoons ground achiote (or annatto)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons Maggi seasoning sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
large zip-top bag

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Squeeze limes for juice (3 tablespoons).
Chop garlic (2 teaspoons).
Cut chicken into four portions; place in zip-top bag.
Whisk lime juice, garlic, achiote, oregano, cumin, Maggi seasoning, wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon oil until well blended and add to bag with chicken; seal bag and turn to coat chicken. Let stand 10 minutes to marinate (or overnight for more flavor).
Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade); season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper (wash hands). Place remaining 1 tablespoon oil in pan, then add chicken; cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until browned.
Transfer chicken to baking sheet. Bake 30–35 minutes or until chicken is 165°F. Let stand 4–5 minutes before serving.
