Number of Servings: 2


    1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, fat trimmed (2 breast halves)
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil, preferably canola oil


In a small, dry skillet over medium heat, toast coriander, cumin, and pepper, stirring for 45 seconds or until aromatic. Transfer to a small bowl, add salt, and set aside.
Preheat broiler. Lightly oil a broiler rack or coat it with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap; flatten the meat slightly with a rolling pin. Discard the plastic wrap. Brush both sides of the chicken with oil, then coat with the spice mixture and place on the prepared rack. Broil until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
