Pollo Regio Knockoff

rudeboy | Oct 6, 201409:38 AM     16

Okay, I went to El Pollo Regio last night to pick up some chicks for dinner. It now cost $16+ for a whole and $9.75 for a half. Bu the time I got 1.5 chickens with tax and tip, it was pushing $30. You do get small portions of rice, beans, and the onion, but hell. What amazes me is that every time I go, there's still a line with a lot of mexican americans and maybe non-american latinos in line that definitely were not wealthy. Am I crazy?

Recently, I tried to make it at home using achiote, orange juice and a bit of lime juice, garlic, coriander cumin, black pepper, and oregano. It was pretty close, but not quite. I I didn't have the green sauce. Anyone had success?

I guess meat prices have gone up lately, though. I checked HEB, and I can get a 3.2 pound natural chicken for about $5.50.
