Pollo Pendejo (Foolproof Chicken)

50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)

The literal interpretation for this recipe is "idiot chicken", because it's really difficult to mess up. Marinated in a sauce and then cooked in beer, the chicken is almost guaranteed to come out moist and juicy (unless you reallllllllly overcook it). You could serve this with buttered noodles, mashed potatoes or rice. Add a salad and call it a complete meal! Recipe courtesy of Ingrid Hoffmann.
