    El Pollo Loco Chicken

    1 chicken -- cut pieces
    1 w/skin
    broiler basting sauce/recipe below
    1/3 cup lemon juice
    1/3 cup lime juice
    1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
    1 tsp ground turmeric
    1/2 tsp garlic salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper

    Briefly simmer the cut-up chicken in a deep-sided skillet, keeping
    pieces in single layer without crowding them, until the meat appears
    milky white and the juices run clear, no longer pink. Allow to cool
    in the broth, uncovered, while you prepare the basting sauce. Arrange
    the chicken pieces skin-side up on broiler pan in single layer and
    baste with enough of mixture to evenly coat skin side. Turn and baste
    other side. Turn again to skin side up and broil 6" from the heat,
    brushing with additional sauce every few minutes until skin is really
    crispy and golden brown, approximately 5 to 8 minutes for large
    pieces. BASTING MIXTURE-Mix juices, oil, turmericc, salt and pepper.
    This makes enough to bastenine pieces. Source: Gloria Pitzer's Secret
