I love El Pollo Loco but moved out of California and there are none around where I live now. I have tried four different knock off version of their chicken recipe and none have come anywhere close this recipe was awesome and just about spot on if not totally spot on! So happy can recreate my favorite chicken tacos now. So happy!

This recipe duplicates the chicken's taste!!!!! Do Not deviate or it will throw off the taste of the finished product.

Bullseye! This clone does it! The taste of the chicken, is almost exact! The El Pollo Loco Salsa Recipe, is just that good, too!
Great job, Todd!

Forget the lime juice and reduce water to 1 cup and use one cup pineapple juice, It'll step it up acee.

While this was good, it was not even close to El Pollo. Keep trying, I love EPL

Since we moved from California to Tennessee, I've been craving El Pollo Loco! In desperation, I tried this recipe. When I combined the ingredients as directed, I thought, "This isn't going to work--this looks to watery to be a decent marinade." Wow, was I wrong!! It does taste just like El Pollo Loco!

Recipe for this marinade turned very bland and there is obviously something missing. Will not use again.

We had Pollo Loco in California and often bought their chicken. Since we have moved to New Mexico and we missed the Pollo Loco experience. Had this chicken last night and it was fantastic! Thanks for the recipe.
