Playing How to Make Mexican Grilled Chicken In 15 Minutes

This recipe is the result of being surprised with ingredients by my coworker, Grant. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been a little nervous about this challenge, but I ended up really liking this recipe and the adrenaline rush!

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin plus 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red onions, 1 sliced and 1 finely chopped
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 zucchini, spiralized with a spiralizer tool
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 20 fresh cherries, pitted and finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime, divided
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cilantro, stemmed and chopped (optional)


Serves: 4


Heat a grill pan or an outdoor grill to medium-high. Rub the chicken with the chili powder, 1 tablespoon cumin, the coriander, salt and pepper, and grill on both sides until cooked through. Remove from grill and let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add in sliced onion and peppers, and sauté for 4-5 minutes or until slightly brown. Add spiralized zucchini and spinach to the pan, and stir to combine. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper, and remove from heat.

In a small mixing bowl, mix together cherries, chopped red onion, salt, pepper and juice of half a lime. (We didn’t have any cilantro in the kitchen, but this salsa would be great with a little cilantro mixed in as well!)

In another small bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon cumin, salt, pepper and the juice of the other half of the lime.

To plate, serve the vegetable mix on the bottom of the plate or bowl, top with chicken, Greek yogurt sauce and cherry salsa.
