Welcome the Summer With Chili-Rubbed Chicken

Friday, May 21, 2010

Grilling is the quintessential summer activity.Why not spice up your summer and welcome it with this lean protein-rich and antioxidant-loaded grilled chicken recipe from Martha Stewart?

Chili-Rubbed Chicken

Oil for grates
Coarse salt
12 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat
1/3 cup chili powder

1. Heat a grill to medium-high; lightly oil grates.
2. Meanwhile, generously salt both sides of the chicken and then rub with chili powder; set aside.
3. Sear the chicken over the hotter part of the grill, for a minute or two on each side. Move the chicken to the cooler part of the grill, cover, and grill, turning occasionally until fully cooked through, 12 to 16 minutes.
4. Transfer to platter and serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Tip: Serve the grilled chicken with corn on the cob, salsa, and a side salad for a refreshing grilled meal. Grilled vegetables like asparagus, bell peppers, and mushrooms also make for an interesting side. End the meal with a selection of fresh fruit in minted champagne.

With this meal, who can say that healthy eating have to be bland and boring?
