More About This Recipe

  • Traditional pollo asado or roasted chicken is one of my favorite meals. I prepare it often for special holidays and during the week as well. To keep this type of dish fresh, I like trying different roasted chicken recipes, such as this preparation that uses a honey and beer marinade. Personally, I prefer to marinate the chicken overnight; the results are fantástico! The meat turns out very succulent and soft when cooked. I prefer to make this recipe using chicken legs, but you can use whichever section you like most, or even a whole chicken.
