  • 1 whole chicken (cut into 8-10 pieces)
  • 2 cups mojo marinade (one recipe, link below. If desired, make a little extra of the mojo sauce to serve with chicken later)
  • 1 yellow onion (large, sliced into 1/2" rounds)
  • 2 Tbsp Italian parsley (chopped, or cilantro)
  • 2 limes (cut into wedges)


  • Spread the chicken pieces in a baking dish. Pour in the mojo marinade. Rub each peace with the marinade really well, lifting skin and getting the marinade underneath. Marinate in a fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Scatter the onion slices all over the bottom of a roasting pan, then arrange the chicken pieces on top, skin side up. Pour the marinade all over the chicken pieces and onions. Roast for about 60 to 75 minutes, or until the tops a golden brown and the chicken is cooked through. Rotate the baking dish after about 40 minutes to ensure even browning.
  • Remove the chicken pieces from the roasting pan and transfer to a serving platter. Add a little more fresh Mojo marinade, if you have any, to wake up the flavors. Stir the pan juices and pour them over the chicken pieces. Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro and lime wedges and serve.
