Spice-Crusted Chicken with Citrus Salsa

While this recipe calls for oranges, grapefruit would work equally well. This salsa would also be terrific tucked into fish tacos.

Serves 4

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 small clov garlic, minced
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed (1-1 1/4 pounds total)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To make salsa: With a sharp knife, remove skin and white pith from oranges and discard. Working over a bowl, cut orange segments from their surrounding membranes. Stir in onion, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeño and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

To make chicken: Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add coriander, cumin and pepper; toast, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 45 seconds. Transfer to a small bowl and add salt.

Step 3

Preheat grill or broiler.

Step 4

Coat the chicken with the spice mixture. Grill or broil on a lightly oiled rack until the chicken is opaque in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Top with the salsa.
