Pollo asado. Barbacoa.
The home cooks carefully arrange the seasoned chicken onto a roasting pan. After about an hour in the oven at 375 degrees, it’s cooked to perfection.
The grill masters use a nice charcoal for that classic right-off-the-grill flavor. While the chicken roasts, they occasionally brush it with leftover marinade.
The Mom and Pop restaurant takes extra time to tenderize the chicken first. After it’s cooked, it’s shredded and served on some house-made tortillas. They add fresh avocado and grilled green onion on top because no tacos are complete without it.
All chefs have a certain spice blend in common.
