Pollo en Escabeche Oriental (Yucatan-Style Chicken and Onion Stew)

Delicately spiced, tangy escabeche, a preparation typical of the Yucatan, makes a vibrant marinade and sauce for stewed chicken. The grapefruit, orange, and lime juices called for in this recipe approximate the flavor of the Yucatan's sour oranges, which are difficult to get here.James Oseland

Pollo Pibil (Yucatan-Style Chicken with Achiote)

Marinated in a crimson achiote and citrus juice marinade and served with pickled onions, this chicken dish is eaten all over the Yucatan. It gets an additional layer of flavor from the banana leaves that line the inside of the pot, but should you opt not to use them, the result will still be delicious.James Oseland
