4 Oranges juiced
1 oz Achiote paste (2 tbsp achiote powder)
4 Garlic cloves
3 tbsp White vinegar

1. In a blender, mix the orange juice, lime juice, achiote, garlic, oregano and 1 tbsp. of vinegar.
2. Cover the chicken with the marinade, season with salt to taste, cover with plantain leaf and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (better if more).
3. Using a medium or big saucepan, add a piece of plantain leaf to the bottom of the pan enough to cover it all. Add the chicken and all the marinade, and then add another leaf on top, cover and cook for 20 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked.
4. While the chicken is cooking, sliced the onion and let it sit in a plate with 2 tbsp. of vinegar.
5. Remove the chicken, shredded and serve with onions on top and white rice, beans and yellow plantains.
