Chef Mollie’s Mixed Citrus & Garlic Mojo Chicken Recipe

Our June 2021 Chef of the Month, Chef Mollie is sharing her delicious mixed citrus & garlic mojo chicken recipe! Take chicken breast to the next level with her mouth-watering marinade. To top off the entire dish, she also recommends serving it with a side of mango salsa, maduros (seared sweet plantains) black beans and Arroz Verde – can someone say yes, please?!

Chef Mollie is sharing her d


  • 2.5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1.5in cubes
  • 3 Tbsp Grapeseed oil
  • 3 Tbsp garlic, smashed & minced
  • 1/4 cup orange juice + ½ Tbsp zest
  • 1/2 c grapefruit juice + ½ Tbsp zest
  • 1/4c lime juice + 1 tsp zest
  • 1/4c lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp comino molido
  • 1/4c chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano, Mexican preferably
  • Few Tbsp salt


  1. Whisk all marinade ingredients together. Taste for salt, spice, and acidity.
  2. Save about 1/2c marinade separately, then use the rest to marinate chicken pieces for 1-2 hours.
  3. Heat another Tbsp grapeseed or neutral oil in a pan over medium high heat, add chicken pieces, making sure to not overcrowd the pan (might need to do in batches) and sear on each side for a few minutes until it’s cooked through.
  4. Allow any excess marinade from the pieces to reduce in the pan and coat the chicken further with the mojo, and add the remaining reserved ½ cup mojo to the chicken while cooking.
