Chili Lime "Pollo Asado" - Barbecued Chicken

Hot Grill

This video took place at the CrossFit Mobility Certification on July 1, 2012 at CrossFit SISU in Plymouth, MN. My brother, and owner of SISU, invited me down to cook for the attendees and help spread the news about It was a lot of work, as all cooking is, but it was well worth it.

This recipe is a play on the Chili Lime Chicken video that I did for the CrossFit Journal. If you are a subscriber, you would do well to watch that video first as it shows you how to cut the chicken in half. If you are not a subscriber to the CrossFit Journal, you should be ashamed of yourself. J/K, but it really is an amazing resource and I totally recommend it.

We served the chicken with cilantro chive slaw, and roasted onions and pineapple. Everything turned out, except for the slaw. It was difficult to predict the quantity needed. I was expecting people to take Zone portions, but I think K-Star was the only one who did. It was underdressed, which is alright for a normal salad, but not for a slaw. So, I'll follow this recipe up with one for Chipotle Chive Slaw, something I've since developed and I think you'll enjoy...

Side by side parting of the chickens. Thank you, Jason for opening all of the chickens and removing the innards and ice, that is a hand chilling job.

And that was it. It was a hot day for sure, but worth the effort.

Thanks to everyone who helped out and all who ate the food.

I hope this helps you out of your 'chicken rut', which most people are stuck in, and gives you something to work with this Labor Day Weekend. No pun intended...

Have a good one and remember to, "Keep It Paleo!"
