If you've got it, flaunt it!
Citrus Cilantro Chicken
Juice of one orange, approximately 1/2 cup
2 Tb olive oil
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp Cajun Seasoning. You could easily substitute any other spice mix that sounds good, or simply use chili powder and garlic.
Salt to taste depending on if your spice mix has salt already
Mix together and pour over 2 chicken breasts in a covered shallow dish or plastic bag. Refrigerate for about 4 hours. It will still be good with 2 hours marinating time, but not have quite as much flavor.
Grill or pan fry chicken until it is no longer pink in the center. I served mine with sides of quinoa and steamed veggies. Easy, yummy, healthy, kids didn't complain.
Have any more ideas for cilantro and oranges? What have you made just because the ingredients were available?
