1 tablespoon onion powder or flakes

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes

1 tablespoon achiote powder

1/2 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon salt

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Nonstick cooking spray or oil

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small glass jar with an airtight lid and shake to blend. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks.
  2. Season chicken with the adobo seasoning. Heat a grill pan to medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray or drizzle with oil. Place the chicken on the grill pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side depending on the size of the breasts.
  3. When chicken is cooked through, slice 2chicken breasts for the fishy-dillas and reserve the remaining 4 for the chicken salad.
  4. Note: This recipe for adobo is a staple seasoning for many of my Latin recipes. You can make a large batch, store it in an airtight container and use it as a flavor enhancer in your favorite dishes.
