    With the citrus juices, cumin, and jalapeno pepper, this is a marinated Mexican-style chicken maybe. Aside from the Thyme this doesn't resemble Jamaican Jerk for nothing. If you like El Pollo Loco, then you've already eaten this basic recipe before. Perhaps use marjoram in place of thyme. - 2/21/21
