Pollo Loco translates to crazy chicken which must be because most people who eat this dish are crazy for it, right? Haha.

Spicy, creamy, and “crazy” delicious

 

The recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients and it comes together in under 30 minutes! The most work you need to do is slice up the chicken. Honestly, 25 minutes of the 30 minutes is hands off. That’s my style of cooking.

 

 

Also, VEEERY budget friendly! We all need a little more of that these days, unfortunately.
