My family's favorite grilled or broiled chicken seasoned with Latin flavors to create the best tasting chicken!

Pollo Sabroso means delicious chicken in Spanish so I thought the name would be perfectly fitting for this flavorful chicken that everyone loves in my house. I especially love it topped with a little Peruvian Green Sauce!

Latin food has so much flavor because we like to use lots of seasoning and this chicken is no exception. A quick recipe for the broiler or grill; you can use thighs, legs, breast, wings, whatever you like. I usually let this marinate at least 20 minutes, but it’s even better if you marinate it overnight.

I personally enjoy this with all visible fat trimmed off the chicken and a small piece of skin on top. If you wish to make this without the skin, the points will be lower. This is also great with boneless chicken thighs or breasts.

Sazon seasoning with achiote is what gives this chicken the red color, and can be purchased in most supermarkets. I personally like Badia because it does not have MSG. I also have a recipe for Homemade Sazon if you wish to make it from scratch.
