Grilled Coriander Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup olive oil
1 onion finely diced
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground coriander seeds
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon freshly-ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation

1
Flatten the chicken breasts to approximately 1-inch thick and place in a Ziplock bag with the marinade ingredients for 4 hours.
2
Preheat your grill for 5 minutes and place the chicken over the hottest part. Let the flames come in contact with the meat to brown but not burn. Cook for 5 minutes and turn.
3
Do the same with the other side. Check for doneness. If the chicken needs to cook some more, turn the heat down to low or move the chicken to a warming rack.

Comments: We are used to the taste of coriander (cilantro) in Mexican food where the leaves are often used to season and garnish a multitude of dishes, but the seeds can also be ground to produce a pungent and wonderful flavor. Here is a simple coriander grilled chicken breast to serve as a sandwich on toasted pita bread, or as an entree with stir-fried vegetables and basmati rice.
