Chicken adobo #2

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 eaches Cloves garlic, chopped
1 each Shallot, minced
½ teaspoon Ground cumin
½ teaspoon Dried oregano
½ teaspoon Dried thyme
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons Fresh sour orange or lime juice
2 tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
\N \N Plenty of salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 eaches Whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts, split

Wash and blot-dry chicken. Mash garlic, shallot and herbs to a paste in a mortar with a pestle. Whisk in remaining ingredients. (Marinade can be made in a blender.) Transfer marinade to a nonreactive baking dish; add chicken.

Turn to coat. Cover and marinate at least 30 minutes, longer if possible.

Turn chicken occasionally. Preheat barbecue grill to medium. Grill chicken over medium heat until just cooked, about two minutes per side. (Chicken can be broiled; time under heat will be same as grilling.) Serves 4.
