This is the first of many South Beach Diet recipes I will be posting. The spices on the chicken has a mellow heat to it. As for the "dipping sauce," it dances around on your tongue with the heat from the serrano pepper and the bite from the cilantro. The parsley gives it a mellow cool fresh flaver. Does that make sense??? As you can see from the photo I had mine with just steamed broccoli. When I make dinner for my guys I do serve a starch/carb, ie potato, rice or pasta.
Spice Rubbed Chicken Fingers with Cilantro Dipping Sauce
•1/2 teaspoon chili powder
•1/16 teaspoon salt
•1 tablespoon lime juice
•1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
•1 tablespoon water
•Sprig cilantro, for garnish
Coat a grill rack or broiler-pan rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill or broiler.
Place the chicken on the prepared rack and grill or broil 6" from the heat, turning several times, for 15 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 170°F and the juices run clear. Serve with the sauce and garnish with the cilantro.
