Chicken Legs with Achiote Garlic Sauce

60 mins (prep 30)
18 ingredients
makes 4 servings
This dish, flavored with achiote seeds, garlic, and spices, is based on chicken pibil, from Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Traditionally, the chicken is baked in banana leaves, but here we've used collard leaves because they are more readily available. They add moisture and a bit of flavor but do not get tender enough to eat.
