About this recipe: I learned this recipe from a Cuban neighbor in Florida. Whenever I make it, everyone always asks me for the recipe!


Serves: 4 

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 fresh red chilli, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 teaspoons orange juice
  • 5 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon soya sauce
  • 1/4 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Chopped coriander to garnish

Prep:40min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:2hr marinating  ›  Ready in:3hr5min 

  1. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Place the cumin seeds, garlic, chile pepper, salt, olive oil, orange juice, and lemon juice into the bowl of a blender; grind to a coarse paste. Toss the chicken with the marinade, then place into the refrigerator, and allow to marinate for about 2 1/2 hours.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until the juices run clear. When the chicken is done, remove, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, lime zest, honey, and soy sauce in a skillet over medium-high heat. Simmer until the orange juice has reduced to 1/3 of original volume and is beginning to get thick and syrupy. Once thick, remove from heat, and whisk in the butter pieces one at a time until melted; set aside.
  4. To serve, place chicken on the plate and sprinkle with mango and avocado. Drizzle with the sauce, and garnish with coriander.
