Buttermilk Southwestern Grilled Chicken
Here is what you need:
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 lime, zested and juiced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
Hot sauce, to taste (recommended: Tabasco)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless chicken breasts (each about 6 to 8 ounces)
Add the buttermilk to a large bowl and add lime zest and juice.
Add garlic,hot sauce, chili powder, coriander, cumin and turmeric.
Add cilantro, and salt and pepper, to taste.
Add the chicken and coat well.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Marinate in fridge for 4 to 24 hours. (If you are using fish, marinate 30 minutes.)
,Preheat the grill pan over medium-low heat for boneless breasts and fish, and medium heat for bone-in breasts, thighs and legs. Remove the meat/fish from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.
Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste, on both sides.
Grill until golden brown and charred on both sides and just cooked through about 4 minutes a side. If you butterflied the chicken like I did you grill it 3 minutes on one side, 2 on the second side. I butterfly the breasts for grilling because I think it comes out more even.
I served with corn. (Cut corn off 2 cobs, sauted in a pat of butter with lemon zest and juice, garlic, salt, pepper and finished with basil._
On-Air Weekday Mornings 5 am - 10 am
I grew up Radford, Virginia but I was actually born in Bangkok, Thailand. (Army Brat) While attending Virginia Tech I worked at WKEX Radio. My first job was to wear the station's mascot costume. I was the "Wacky Bird!" After graduation I moved to Myrtle Beach and was a radio reporter for WNMB. I later worked as a reporter for a Florence based TV station. I moved on from there to a radio station in Richmond, VA then on to Cleveland, Ohio where I worked for Power 108. After one winter in Cleveland I knew I needed a little warmer climate.I was hired as the Morning Co-host and News Director of K-92 in Roanoke, VA. It is at that station where I met Mo. He was hired as K-92ï¿½s nighttime jock. After about 8 months, Mo was moved up to do mornings with me. We were dating at the time but nobody knew about it. We got married in 1994 and have been together ever since. Mo and I left K-92 and went to do mornings at B-103 in Richmond, Virginia. Then in 1999 we came to South Florida. We've been on several stations in the West Palm Beach area but KOOL 105.5 has been our professional home since 2003. We have a home in Palm Beach Gardens that we share with our cats Stifler, Stewie and Cleveland. (All strays!)(By the way if my last name seems familiar to those of you who watched the CBS Evening News back in the day, my Uncle was reporter/commentator Eric Sevareid.)
