What you will need for ingredients:

Kitchen tools to use:

  • Sheet Pan
  • Parchment Paper
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Medium Bowl

Let’s make this tasty dish!

Follow these steps to make the perfect Mexican seasoned chicken dinner for all of your friends and family.

1. In a Medium bowl Marinate chicken with lime juice, Mexican mole seasoning, oil, and salt. Let Marinate for 15 mins or overnight in the fridge.

The longer you let the chicken marinade the better. Just think of it this way, flavor always gets better with time. (Foodie Hack: If you have a food saver machine put the chicken and marinade in a gallon sized bag and carefully suck all of the air out of the bag. This will help infuse the marinade into the meat much faster. Leave in the fridge for one hour and you will have some tasty chicken!)

2. Place chicken on a parchment paper lined sheet pan, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 mins.

Using parchment paper will ensure that the chick doesn’t burn or stick to anything while being cooked to perfection.

3. Remove foil from chicken and bake for an additional 25 mins until the skin is crispy and browned.

We all know that browning food adds a layer of flavor that cannot be replaced with any seasoning out there. Just make sure you watch it closely as even oven’s temp fluctuates a bit.
