A spicy, herbal oven-fried chicken to serve with rice and mojo. Mojo is a sauce used in many Latin countries. It is essentially a vinaigrette but the oil is heated before it's added, giving a more subtle flavour. Brown the chicken ahead of time and bake when needed. Thighs have the most flavour but breasts may be used. Bake breasts for 5 minutes less. Boned chicken thighs are available at the supermarket or ask your butcher to remove the bones for you. This recipe may be grilled instead of baked. Grill chicken 6 minutes per side or until juices are clear. Mojo keeps about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.From Food and Drink.
