Citrus Chicken with a touch of Cumin and Oregano

When the lime and orange zests cook they create a sweet stickiness that is almost candy-like. The oregano and cumin add a counter-balancing kick; serve with rice and a big green salad.

INGREDIENTS (serves 4):

  • 4 boneless chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Minced zest and juice of 1 orange zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil (replace with a few tablespoons of water to reduce fat content)


1. Place the chicken, oregano, cumin, garlic, and zest and juice of lime and orange in a large non-reactive shallow bowl and stir to combine.

2. Cover and refrigerate at least 1/2 hour and not more than one hour.

3. Remove and discard as much of the marinade as possible. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.

4. Place a large cast iron or non-stick skillet over high heat and when it is hot, add the oil. Add the chicken breasts one at a time, waiting about 30 seconds between additions.

5. Cook until well browned and cooked throughout.

6. Transfer the chicken to a platter and serve immediately.
