Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients except chicken and oil in food processor. Add oil to spice blend to make marinade.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a glass dish and spread with marinade. Cover, refrigerate and marinate chicken for 4 to 8 hours.
  3. Broil or grill until done.
  4. Serve with rice pilaf, couscous or quinoa.
  5. My notes: you can hold back just a little of the marinade to add to the chicken after cooking, to add to rice, couscous or quinoa after cooking, or other uses such as for the base for a vinaigrette dressing.
