Copycat El Pollo Loco Chicken
From the blogger: "El Pollo Loco Chicken is marinated in citrus and pineapple juice overnight for the PERFECT El Pollo Loco copycat recipe! El Pollo Loco Chicken is hard to describe if you’re not local to the restaurant. There is a definite citrus flavor, but there is also a definite brick chicken quality to it. I used to watch them cook the chicken on my lunch hour while waiting for my food, I’d see them put a metal press on top of it. While you don’t HAVE to do this, it is the best way to get a delicious crispy skin on the chicken."
