 Ingredients List

  • 4 Boneless chicken breast
  • -halves with skin
  • 4 Garlic cloves; peeled
  • And thinly sliced or chopped
  • 1/2 Orange; juiced
  • 1/2 Lemon; juiced
  • 1/4 ts Cumin
  • 1/8 ts Ginger
  • 1/8 ts Turmeric
  • 1/8 ts Paprika
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 2 tb Extra virgin olive oil; plus

  • -recipe


Combine the chicken, garlic, orange juice, lemon juice, cumin, ginger,
turmeric, paprika, salt, cayenne and olive oil. Toss to mix well. Let
marinate for 2 to 4 hours.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.

Cook either over hot coals or in a medium-hot pan, starting first with the
skin side, then turning to cook the other side. The chicken breasts will
cook very quickly; allow only about 3 minutes per side.

Take care not to overcook them that is the only way you can go wrong
with this recipe. If they are cooked properly, they will be bursting with
juiciness, and their flesh will just have turned white.

Serve the chicken breasts sliced diagonally, with a spoonful of caponata to
be spread onto the chicken as desired. Serves 4.
