This chicken is baked to perfection as is soaks up warm spices and the delicious flavors of the fruit. It's a super comforting entrée and is perfect over rice or noodles.
*Please note that the chicken has to marinate for at least 6 hours, and ideally overnight.
Annato seeds are derived from the fruit of the achiote tree. Though it has a very mild, sweet and peppery flavor, it's typically used as a natural food coloring. They won’t change the flavor of this recipe— just the color — which I think is lovely and super appetizing. You can find annato seeds in most Mexican markets, and you can get them here.
