Cuban Chicken (Pollo Asado)

INGREDIENTS
1 whole chicken cut in half or in pieces (I removed skin) 1 tbsp olive oil 6-8 cloves of garlic minced 1 tbsp salt 1 tbsp black pepper 1/2 tsp dried chipotle powder
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 small onion minced
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
METHOD: Mix all ingredients except chicken in a bowl. Place the chicken in a baking dish and cover with the marinade. Cover with tin foil. Place a weighted object, like a brick (or two) on top of the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator overnight (turning once). Preheat oven to 400. Keeping the chicken covered cook for 1 hour and 15 mins. Reduce the heat to 350 and cook for 30 mins more. Then uncover the chicken and reduce heat to 300 and cook for another 15 mins. Allow the chicken to rest for 10 mins when done cooking.
