Spice-Crusted Chicken with Citrus Salsa


From EatingWell:  March 1998

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

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes





  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.
  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.
  3. Preheat grill or broiler.
  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.
