This recipe from Melissa Rubel Jacobson is based on Peruvian rotisserie chicken. It's deliciously lemony and garlicky. A bit of vinegar makes it even brighter-tasting.

  1. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  2. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  3. 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  4. 8 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  5. 1 teaspoon turmeric
  6. 1 tablespoon hot paprika
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together. Place the chicken in a large, resealable bag and add the marinade. Seal the bag and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and brush liberally with vegetable oil. Scrape any marinade off the chicken, season it generously with salt and pepper and grill.
Serve With Avocado and red onion salad.
