Provided by Chris Salicrup

Categories     Dinner

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, 4 pieces, pounded to 1/2 inch (1 cm) thickness
2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika
fine sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons dijon mustard, divided
1 clove garlic, grated
1 lemon, zested, divided
1 lb fingerling potato, halved
¾ cup whole milk greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped, extra to garnish, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C).
  • Season the chicken breasts with paprika, salt, and pepper. Place in a shallow dish and add 2 tablespoons of the oil, 1 teaspoon of the mustard, the garlic, and half the lemon zest.
  • Toss until the chicken breasts are fully coated, then cover the dish and marinate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  • On a baking sheet, toss the potato halves with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast until tender and golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, and working in two batches, cook until golden brown on one side, 6 to 8 minutes. Flip each breast and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer to a serving platter and repeat with the remaining oil and breasts.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt with the remaining 1 teaspoon mustard, lemon zest, salt, pepper and the parsley.
  • Serve the chicken with the yogurt and potato wedges.
  • Enjoy!

Peruvian Roasted Chicken With Spicy Cilantro Sauce image

Burnished-skinned, deeply flavored and more than just a little spicy, it's no wonder that Peruvian chicken has become something of an obsession here in the United States. There are dozens of way to make this dish, but most recipes call for two different kinds of Peruvian chile pastes - aji amarilla and aji panca - to add the necessary complexity and heat. You can find them at South American markets and online. But in a pinch, you can substitute a red chile paste (like sriracha or sambal) for the aji amarillo, and ground pasilla chile powder for the aji panca. The flavors won't be traditional, but the chicken will still be tasty - especially when slathered with the irresistibly creamy, spicy cilantro sauce that goes alongside.

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 24

6 garlic cloves, finely grated or minced
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon aji amarillo paste or another chile paste such as sriracha or sambal
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon aji panca paste or 1 teaspoon pasilla chile powder
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 (3 1/2- to 4 1/2-pound) chicken, halved (see Note) or 4 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken parts
Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
1 cup cilantro leaves and tender stems
3 to 4 jalapeños, seeded and diced
1/4 cup/1 ounce crumbled feta cheese
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice, more to taste
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or basil
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, more to taste
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon aji amarillo or other chile paste (see headnote)
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Lime wedges, for garnish


  • For the marinade: In a large bowl, whisk together garlic, soy sauce, aji amarillo paste, lime juice, aji panca paste, mustard, cumin, pepper and salt.
  • Add chicken halves, turning to coat them all over with marinade. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
  • Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Arrange skin-side up on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with oil.
  • Roast until skin is golden and chicken is cooked through, 35 to 45 minutes (if using chicken parts, remove the breasts after 25 to 35 minutes). Remove from oven and let sit, loosely covered with foil, for 10 minutes before serving.
  • While chicken is roasting, make the sauce. In a blender, blend cilantro, jalapeños, feta, garlic, lime juice, oregano, salt, mustard, aji amarillo paste, honey, and cumin until smooth. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in oil until mixture is emulsified. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt or lime juice or both.
  • Carve the chicken and serve with the sauce and lime wedges on the side.

Spiced Roast Chicken With Tangy Yogurt Sauce image

This weeknight meal is inspired by the spiced chicken and rice that draws lines at halal street carts across Manhattan. Whether it's lunchtime or late at night, the scent and Mediterranean flavors of grilled and chopped chicken served over turmeric-tinged yellow rice (or wrapped in pita) alongside shredded iceberg salad lures a crowd. Everything gets an imperative, generous drizzle of that signature creamy and tangy white sauce, made here with a blend of yogurt, mayonnaise and spices. Fresh garlic, cilantro and lemon juice are combined with a tasty mix of fragrant spices, then rubbed all over the chicken before it's roasted until golden and crispy. The iceberg-and-tomato salad offers a cool, refreshing contrast to the spiced chicken.

1/4 cup neutral oil, such as safflower or canola
5 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lemon juice, plus wedges for serving
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt and black pepper

  • Add the remaining cilantro and lemon juice to the roasted chicken and mix well, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Divide chicken, lettuce and tomatoes among 4 plates and drizzle with some of the white sauce. Serve with lemon wedges, plus pita and hot sauce, if using.


Shawarma-Spiced Chicken Pita with Tahini-Yogurt Sauce image

Traditional shawarma calls for roasting meat on a large vertical spit. We mimic the effect here by roasting at a high temperature, which yields chicken that is crisp on the outside yet moist and juicy on the inside.
