Pollo loco grilled chicken simply means “crazy chicken.” In fact, I was inspired by the famous chain of restaurants named “El pollo loco.” It was a personal great experience to eat at their restaurants while visiting California. I dined in with my dad. Those have become wonderful memories worth remembering. Of course, It is probably fair to say we will never know the exact recipe. But, we know it marinates in citrus, and most likely garlic, and spices. Then, It cooks over open fire.
