DIRECTIONS

  • Put chicken in a glass dish large enough to hold the chicken pieces in a single layer.
  • Combine oil, lemon juice, cilantro, salt, cumin, shallots, pepper, cayenne and garlic.
  • Pour mixture over the chicken and turn pieces to coat.
  • Refrigerate, covered, at least 2 hours, turning chicken occasionally.
  • Remove chicken from the marinade, reserving marinade.
  • Boil marinade and then leave at a simmer for use as a baste.
  • Place chicken on oiled rack of gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4-6 inches from medium-hot coals.
  • Cook, turning once and basting often with the heated marinade, 10-12 minutes, or until chicken is firm, opaque, and light golden brown.
  • Discard remaining marinade.
  • Put 2 tablespoons of salsa on each serving plate and put 1 piece of chicken on top of the salsa and serve immediately.
