Indian Spice Grilled Chicken

23 Aug

I’m absolutely in LOVE with the flavors in this dish – the warmth from the cumin combined with the fresh bite from the cilantro and scallions create a one of a kind taste. The marinade is colorful and has such an enticing aroma, you’ll be drooling in no time! I don’t have a lot of experience cooking with cumin, but am quickly becoming addicted to this bold spice. This is simple to grill outside with a cold beer in hand or on an unbearably hot day (aka: here in TX!) you can make it inside on your George Foreman or grill pan. Enjoy!

Indian Spice Grilled Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
For the marinade:
5 scallions, chopped
2/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 small lime, zest and juice
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend together until it’s all combined. Put the chicken in a ziplock bag and add the marinade. Zip the bag and shake it up to evenly coat the chicken. Place the bag in the refrigerator and let the chicken marinate for at least 1 hour, but the longer the better! Once your grill is prepped, cook the chicken until done. (depending on how you’re grilling it – I used a George Foreman grill and it only took 8-10 minutes total) Serve while it’s hot and garnish with cilantro and scallions if desired.
