NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. – Chipotle Mexican Grill announced it is testing a limited-time only (LTO) Chicken Al Pastor. The item features spicy adobo, achiote, morita peppers, pineapple and cilantro flavors and will be served with fresh lime juice. The test markets include 94 Denver and Indianapolis locations.
The Al Pastor LTO comes on the heels of the company’s successful Pollo Asado. Chipotle prepares the Al Pastor in small batches throughout and uses ‘Responsibly Raised,’ freshly grilled chicken with the featured flavors. The chicken is then hand-chopped into bites and finished with fresh lime and freshly chopped cilantro.
“We created Chicken Al Pastor to fuel our fans who have been craving spicy chicken from Chipotle,” said Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer. “The new menu item artfully pairs fire with flavor in a uniquely Chipotle way.”
Chicken Al Pastor is available alongside all permanent menu items for in-restaurant, online, mobile and delivery orders at select locations in Denver and Indianapolis.
