Pollo Asado Marinade With Beer

Pollo Asado Marinade With Beer

I am so excited the weather is warming up and it has really been getting me into the grilling kick. Pollo Asado is something I’ve been craving for the last couple weeks, and with Cinco De Mayo around the corner, it just seemed like the best recipe to put together this week!

Pollo Asado Marinade With Beer

This Pollo Asado marinade is quite amazing, a little spicy with citrus and a hint of beer makes it light and perfect for street tacos, fajitas or just on it’s own with some beans and rice!Pollo Asado Marinade With Beer

And if you’re going to do street tacos with some pollo asado you can’t NOT add some Avocado Pico De Gallo, or just some good ol’ Guacamole.

Just a side note, but you may need to refrain from drinking the marinade before you get a chance to put the chicken in it. I took a taste before adding the chicken just to make sure it tasted right, and I almost wanted to add some more beer and make it a Michelada (which if you’re in the market for one of those, here’s a good list of some great recipes for micheladas!)

The pollo asado marinade will have the chicken ready to go in about 4 hours, but if you want more flavor, try to keep it sitting for about 8 hours or even overnight until you’re ready to grill up!

I used boneless skinless breasts, then butterflied them so that I could get more surface area of the breast to take in the marinade, but this really works for any type of chicken meat, so if a grilling pack is on sale, go grab that and let it soak up this delicious marinade and grill it up for your Cinco De Mayo party!

Enough Talk. More Rock.

    We are doing tacos for Mother’s day but this looks like a good idea!

  • Revathi Rajesh

    The chicken looks so delicious and mouthwatering. Yummy 🙂

  • Suchi Modi

    This looks amazing. Adding beer is such a great idea. I love that you added orange too. I love pollo asado more than the pulled chicken some mexican place offers.

    • I love the pulled chicken, but I agree this is a much better alternative. Thanks Suchi!

  • Beth Kunzler Neels

    I have never added beer! What a fabulous idea! Thanks for sharing!

  • That marinade sounds so flavorful!

  • You are reaching right into my Mexican heart and making it giggle with glee!

  • Chris

    Flavorful. One comment, your ingredients don’t list lemon and lime but your instructions do. I didn’t grab them while at the store 😏.
