Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken

We made this recipe with fresh from the garden cilantro. This was very easy and very tasty. We used soy sauce--not fish sauce in the marinade. We will make this again for sure!

Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken

2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce or 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Place all the ingredients above in a food processor and process until smooth.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Pour marinade over chicken breast and let flavors sink in for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Prepare your grill or broiler. Cook until temperature registers 165F on the meat thermometer. Let the chicken breasts rest for 5 minutes before serving, this prevents the meat from drying up.

  1. This looks great. I have some dried cilantro that I want to use. My cat ate all the fresh cilantro I was growing!
