Honey Adobo Roasted Chicken

Honey Adobo Rub

The ingredients:

  • 1 ancho chile de-seeded*
  • 1 pasilla chile de-seeded*
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 TBSP all-spice
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 TBSP sesame seeds
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • salt and pepper

The how-to:

  1. Heat an iron-cast skillet over medium high heat in a well ventilated kitchen.
  2. Place the dry peppers and cinnamon stick in the skillet to roast.
  3. After a couple of minutes add garlic cloves and when these start to roast add sesame seeds. Roast for about 45 seconds making sure the seeds don’t burn.
  4. Place all those ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed to “pulverize” them.
  5. Add honey, vinegar, salt and pepper (I recommend using a considerable amount of salt if the rub is going to be used on a whole chicken) and pulse until all the ingredients are well blended.

Notes: *These peppers are dry and can be purchase at a Mexican or Latino markets or at supermarkets in the Latino sectinos. I’ve also seen them in the produce section (by the onions and potatoes).

If you are going to use on chicken, rub the adobe very well over and under the skin. Then bake at 250°F for 1.5 hours.

¡Buen provecho!
