Grilled Chicken Thighs with Cucumber-Mint Salad
Preheat grill to medium-high. (No grill? See broiler variation.)Advertisement
Combine cucumber, mint, onion, 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Mash garlic and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl until it becomes a paste. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, coriander and cumin. Rub the mixture on both sides of each chicken thigh.
Grill the chicken thighs until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Serve the chicken with the cucumber salad.
Broiler Variation: Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray and place the seasoned chicken thighs on it. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source until no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
