Since Brad and I spent the weekend snowed in with a rapidly dwindling pantry, I decided to try a new chicken recipe I clipped from a magazine awhile ago – mostly because I happened to have all of the ingredients on hand. It turned out to be quite yummy!
- 2 – 6 Chicken breasts
- Olive Oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- Lemon juice
Use a mallet or rolling pin to pound chicken to ½ inch thickness. Note: do not pound fingers as this will result in shrieking, followed by mad one foot hopping, while clamping mouth shut to avoid unpleasant language – not that I would know from personal experience or anything.
Mix cumin, salt, and pepper in a small plate or bowl. Place grill pan over medium high heat and spray with Pam. Coat chicken in olive oil and rub with spice mix. Cook for about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and let chicken rest for 5 minutes.
Drizzle with lemon juice and serve.
Any other cumin lovers out there?
