Instructions for Pollo pibil (boiled hen in fruit juice)

To prepare the Pollo pibil (boiled hen in fruit juice) recipe, please follow these instructions:

Mix the juice of orange and lemon into a bowl. Add the battered apricot, garlic, oregano, bowl, cloves, cinnamon, salt and pepper and mix well.

Divide the chicken in 6-8 pieces. Put them in a layer in a dish and pour the spiced fruit juice over. Cover the dish with foil and let the chicken meat pull in the marinade for 6 hours at the kitchen temperature or 12 hours in the fridge. Flip the pieces every now and then.

Put two layers of aluminum foil in a door layer. Bring the chicken pieces and pour the marinade over. Gather the aluminum foil all the way so the marinade stays at the chicken.

Place the dough layer in a saucepan where there is so much boiling water that it hardly reaches the door layer. Put the lid on the pan and steam the chicken for 1 ¾ hours. Add if necessary. More water if necessary.

Place the chicken in a deep dish at the serving and pour the sauce over. Eat hot tortillas instead of bread.
