Chipotle kitchens are heating up with the brand's latest fiery chicken menu innovation. Following the success of Pollo Asado, Chipotle is testing a new premium chicken option that adds an exciting level of spice to guests' go-to orders. Prepared in small batches throughout the day, Chicken Al Pastor is made with Responsibly Raised, freshly grilled chicken seasoned with a powerful marinade of Chipotle's signature adobo, seared morita peppers, and ground achiote with a splash of pineapple. Chicken Al Pastor is then hand-chopped into tender, juicy bites and finished with a touch of fresh lime and freshly chopped cilantro.
