Haven't posted a cook in a while, so here goes...

Wanted to make some chicken, so found a Saveur recipe for Cuban-style adobo chicken that fit the bill. It was simple enough for a school night. 

Recipe called for cumin, lotsa garlic, paprika, lemon juice ( I subbed lime juice), salt, pepper, allspice, and olive oil. I also added some cayenne, and a habanero from the yard for heat. Marinated 4 chicken quarters in it for about 3hrs.

Fired up the egg with some pecan for smoke. For the "plancha" I used my Lil Tuff Guy, so that I would have some room for sweet potatoes. Potatoes cooked for about an hour or so, chicken cooked for 10mins a side until the IT hit 170ish.

The chicken was quite good. I love cumin and garlic, so This recipe will be repeated for sure. I liked using the "plancha" because the marinade did not get wasted - I scooped it all up (cooked) from the plancha and dressed the cooked chicken with it at the end. We discovered sweet potatoes recently and are loving them just wrapped in foil on the egg - super simple side. No plated shots because 1) I am incapable of taking egg-worthy plated shots at night 2) We were really hungry.
