mash the garlic good before peeling. Makes the mincing easier.

Looks good to me. My taste must be off from so many others. I love Citrus in dessert, but not a fan in savory dishes. Lime is fine but I rarely use Lemon and don't care for Orange at all...JJ

That looks absolutely outstanding!! Very nice job, especially the chicken. I'd tear up a platter full of that for sure.

Looks delicious!
That pollo on the grill is screaming, "Eat Me!"
Need some hot tortillas on that plate and "It's on!"

Only thing I'd do different would be to toast the rice and garlic before adding the veggies in to saute.
Thank you Chile.
I do toast the rice for my Spanish rice, but we like the texture better here with this dish without the toast. Just how we roll.
Man, that looks Good!!!

Thanks a bunch Gary.

Thats too bad Chef. The citrus is what makes the meat tender and flavorful. So many complain about skirt steak, for example, being tough. A nice citrus bath from 24 hours is key to tenderizing tough cuts. Then grilled, so good.
As a side, I have a family member with an allergy to oranges, so I have adopted a mixture of lime and ruby red grapefruit for my marinade. I would rather use blood oranges, but this actually works rather well.
That's a good looking plate of food!
Thank you Brian.

Thank you Bear. It’s just rice with grilled chicken. Spanish style.

That I need to try. I do enjoy the flavor of Grapefruit. My Wife found a store that carries SQUIRT, a favorite Grapefruit Soda (Pop) from our childhood...JJ
 
How long do you marinate?

Also, I just noticed that chef jimmyj has passed? That's super sad news. A huge loss for the community :(

Chicken I usually go 4-8 hours. For beef or pork it’s 12-24 hours.

Chef JJ was a huge loss. Left a hole here that more than likely will never really be filled. He is greatly missed.
