Mojo Marinade for Chicken

I'm all about sharing. This recipe is "shared" from one of my favorite blogs, Barefeet in the Kitchen. Following in the same thought of spring, grilled, fresh, etc foods, this sounded really good to me. Grilling time is almost here... although it looks like our grill is going to have to be replaced. This has been THE year for replacing things around the house! Guess that means we're good for another 10 years? I'll try it with boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot until we make a grill decision.
If you use it for grilling, let me know how it turns out! I'm betting on YUMMMM!

Mojo Marinaderecipe slightly adapted from Tyler Florence by Barefeet in the Kitchen blog

5 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeno, very finely minced
1 handful fresh cilantro leaves, about 3 tablespoons finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, adjust as desired
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, adjust as desired
2 limes, juiced
1 orange, juiced
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the very finely minced garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, salt and pepper. Using a mortar and pestle or your hands, mash together and crush to make a paste. Scrape into a jar and then add the orange and lime juices, vinegar and oil. Shake really well to combine thoroughly. Use as a marinade for beef or chicken. Enjoy!
