So feel free to substitute with what you have on hand or run to the store, everything in here is relatively cheap and easy to find! Enjoy!
Cumin Spiced Chicken with Green Chile Sauce
(inspired and created by...ME)
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 T ground Cumin
1/2 t ground adobo pepper seasoning (ground red pepper will also work)
a little olive oil, 1 T or so
salt and pepper
1/2 C fresh cilantro
1 can green chiles
1 clove garlic
1/2 t minced jalapeno
1/4 t salt
squeeze of lime
monterrey jack cheese
1. Preheat grill. Combine seasonings in a bowl (cumin, adobo, s&p). Rub chicken down with seasoning. Allow to sit and mellow in the seasoning up to 24 hours.
2. Put chicken on grill...cook until no longer pink, flipping accordingly. In a food processor or blender, mix together all of the sauce ingredients (cilantro through lime).
3. During last minutes of grilling, top with cheese and let melt. Grab off grill and bring inside. Pour sauce over the top. Enjoy.
