Grilled Cilantro Chicken with Pickled Tomato and Avocado Salsa
We’re nuts about this flavorful,unusual chicken recipe from Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger of Ciudad in Los Angeles and Border Grill in Santa Monica and Las Vegas. The chefs marinate the chicken very simply and then spoon an addictive Indian-style pickled salsa on top.
Make salsa: In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, chiles, and green onions. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring vinegar to a boil. Add brown sugar and salt and cook, stirring, until dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Put ginger, garlic, and dry spices in a bowl. In another medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat until rippling. Add ginger mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in seasoned vinegar, and pour over tomato mixture.
Let salsa cool, then cover and chill at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. About 1 hour before serving, stir avocados into salsa and bring to room temperature.
Make chicken: In a large bowl, combine oil, lime juice, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper. Turn chicken in mixture to coat. Let stand at room temperature, turning occasionally, for 30 to 45 minutes.
Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 inches above the cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds). Lift chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill (close lid on gas grill), turning often to prevent scorching, until no longer pink at bone (cut to test), 15 to 20 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a platter and spoon salsa on top, saving half of liquid for another use (it makes an appealing salad dressing).
