Marinating chicken overnight with fresh jalapenos, garlic, oranges and limes meant that this chicken was full of great flavors. I love using my broiler for quick and easy dinners, however, this chicken would be great grilled as well. We had this chicken for dinner along with the Cinnamon Chile Roasted Potato Bites.

For this meal, I used the Mojo Marinade that I made a couple weeks ago. I mentioned earlier that I had quadrupled the batch and frozen the extra marinade in Ziploc bags.
For those of you that had asked about freezing the marinade, I simply combined the frozen marinade and some frozen chicken in a gallon size Ziploc in the fridge overnight. The marinade and the chicken thawed together in the refrigerator, allowing the marinade to work it’s flavors throughout the meat.
I’m including crock-pot directions here as well. I really liked how well the marinade was absorbed into the chicken in the crock-pot. I used that shredded chicken to make enchiladas later and they were delicious.
FREEZER MEAL: Combine the marinade and chicken in a gallon size Ziploc and freeze them together. When you are ready to cook the chicken, thaw in the refrigerator, allowing the marinade to work its flavors throughout the meat.
Once thawed, oven cook as described above. If you are cooking in the crock-pot, you can add everything to the crock-pot while still frozen.
