Health Highlights


1 bunch Green onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 bunch Cilantro (coriander) (leaves and tender stems only)
2 clove(s) Garlic (chopped)
1 tsp Lime peel (zest) (finely grated)
1 tsp Orange peel (zest) (finely grated)
1/4 cup Soy sauce, low sodium
2 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 tbsp Kosher salt
908 gm Chicken thighs, bone-in, skinless


1. Set aside 1/4 cup sliced scallions.

2. Pulse cilantro, garlic, citrus zests, citrus juices, soy sauce, oil, salt, and remaining scallions in a food processor or blender until a coarse purée forms. Set aside 1/4 cup marinade; place remaining marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, seal bag, and turn to coat. Chill at least 20 minutes.

3. Preheat broiler. Remove chicken from marinade and place, skin side down, on a foil-lined broilerproof baking sheet; discard marinade.

4. Broil chicken until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Turn; continue to broil until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of thigh registers 165°, 12–15 minutes longer.

5. Serve chicken with reserved marinade and scallions.
