Mojo Marinade:

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup orange juice 

1/4 cup lime juice 

1 teaspoon ground cumin 

4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped 

3 sprigs fresh oregano, stems removed and leaves chopped

3 sprigs fresh oregano, stems removed and leaves chopped 

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 

Two 7-inch loaves Cuban bread or Italian bread or French baguette 

2 plum tomatoes, sliced 

1 onion, sliced 

1 ounce mixed greens 


  1. For the marinade: Whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, lime juice, cumin, garlic and oregano in a bowl.
  2. Cut the chicken into strips and pour half of the marinade onto the chicken, just enough to cover it. Marinate for at least 10 minutes. Reserve the other half of the marinade for a later use.
  3. For the plate: Heat up a saute pan over medium heat. Sprinkle the marinated chicken with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil to the pan and saute the chicken until fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
  4. To build the sandwiches, split both loaves of bread open. Add the chicken, sliced tomatoes and onions. Place some mixed greens on top, and then drizzle the reserved marinade to finish. Slice the sandwiches in half and enjoy.
