Persian Crusted Chicken

IMG_2124

I’m not entirely sure if the term “Persian” accurately describes the crafty spice creation surrounding this chicken.  All I know is that it’s darn good!
Freshly grinding and crushing the spice mixture and distinctly rubbing it into the fowl, with the perfectly primed grill, creates a crusted chicken breast to die for ~ really.

In true form, incorporating my love of flavor formulation, I served this creatively spiced sumptuousness over a mash of avocado stuffed inside a mini kabocha squash.  Of course I did, of course.

1 1/2 lbs. organic chicken breast (2 large breasts)
1 tsp. whole cloves
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. cardamom pods
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. black peppercorns
1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt

Preheat the grill and adjust to medium – low heat.  Wash the chicken breasts and pat dry ~ make sure they are completely dry.  Combine all spices in a mortar and pestle and grind into a fine powder.  Evenly “crust” the breasts with the spice mixture on all surfaces.  Grill to absolute perfection.

    This looks delicious and I’m curious how you did the avocado stuffed squash too.
