About a month ago my friend Robin sent me an email which read: "this chicken recipe is a keeper..." And boy was she right. It's hard to believe that such a simple marinade could bring out so much flavor and keep a common, bland chicken breast so moist.
I'll be trying it with tofu next, but for now here's this wonderful recipe, with some minor alterations, for you to enjoy.
Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken (serves 4)
2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons asian fish sauce or 1 tablespoon of GF soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
Place all the ingredients above in a food processor and process until smooth.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Pour marinade over chicken breast and let flavors sink in for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Prepare your grill or broiler. Cook until temperature registers 165F on the meat thermometer. Let the chicken breasts rest for 5 minutes before serving, this prevents the meat from drying up.
