"This mojo marinade is delicious for use with meats and fish before grilling. It's a great marinade for grilled flank steak, whole pork loins, and on whole rotisserie chickens! Meat and chicken should be marinated overnight, fish only needs one hour."

Wonderul marinade for chicken! I cut the recipe in half for 4 boneless chicken breasts. I used regular orange juice from concentrate vs. fresh squeezed then added a bit of fresh and added a bit of orange zest (did the same for the lime). I put everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate all day. I highly recommend adding the Tabasco as it gives it a nice kick. The chicken came out moist, tender and the cilantro paired nicely with the citrus. I served this with "Lime Cilantro Rice" from this site and the leftover chicken went great over mixed greens with "Orange Citrus Vinaigrette" from this site.

I can't imagine how this recipe could be any better. Soak a gnarly slab of flank steak in it overnight, slap that bad boy on the grill, and pour yourself a Mojito, baby!

I slow cook this over pork tenderloin and serve the meat on tortillas. I can't get enough! This is a great recipe. I do add more garlic and leave out the cilantro, which I don't like. Much better than the bottle kind.
