Ingredients

  • 1 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed mint leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced (with seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Four 6-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, tenders removed and reserved for another use

Preparation

  1. 1. Light a grill or preheat a cast-iron grill pan. In a blender or food processor, combine the cilantro, mint, garlic, jalapeño and sugar and pulse until chopped. Add the water, lime juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the grapeseed oil and process until fairly smooth; season with salt and pepper.
  2. 2. Lightly pound the breasts to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Brush the chicken with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of grapeseed oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over a moderately hot fire, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Transfer the chicken to plates, spoon some of the dressing on top and serve, passing extra dressing on the side.
  3. Serve With: Couscous or rice.
