BUTTERFLIED GRILLED CHICKEN WITH A CHILE-LIME RUB RECIPE

 

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub

6 servings

Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes (plus 12-24 hours marinating time)

Ingredients

3 tablespoons chili powder, preferably New Mexico chili, or Hungarian paprika
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano, preferably Mexican
1 1/2 teaspoons salt substitute
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Pinch of ground cinnamon
1 3 1/2- to 4-pound chicken

Preparation

Combine chili powder (or paprika) and oil in a small bowl with lime zest and juice, garlic, coriander, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and cinnamon to form a wet paste.
Using kitchen shears, cut the chicken down one side of the backbone, through the ribs. Make an identical cut on the opposite side to remove the backbone completely; discard (or reserve it for stock). Place the chicken cut-side down and flatten with the heel of your hand. Generously smear the spice rub under and over the skin and on the interior of the bird. Place in a nonreactive baking dish (see Tip). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Preheat half the grill to medium-high (or build a medium-high heat fire on one side of a charcoal grill); leave the other half unheated. Have a squirt bottle of water ready by the grill.
Leave all the spice rub on the chicken. Place the chicken skin-side down over the heat and grill until the skin begins to color and char marks form, about 5 minutes. (Extinguish any flare-ups with the squirt bottle.) Flip over and grill 5 minutes more. Move the chicken to the unheated side. Close the lid and cook, making sure the chicken is flat against the grate, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh without touching bone registers 165°F, 30 to 40 minutes. Transfer to a platter and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before carving.

Preparation

Toss apple slices with lemon juice and cinnamon in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.
Mix 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence, salt and pepper. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or the bottom of a small saucepan to a 1/2-inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the seasoning mixture.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a platter and keep warm. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the pan; heat over high heat. Cook the remaining chicken in the same manner.

1 egg white

Directions:
Mix cottage cheese and sour cream in a bowl. Set aside.
Trim fat off chicken and score lightly with knife in lines about 1″ apart.
Dip chicken in egg white (or brush egg white on with pastry brush).
Rub chicken with blackened Cajun seasoning and salt.

PORK OR CHICKEN VERDE

Ingredients:

-Pork Butt(shoulder) without the blade in or pork loin, whatever is on sale. Pork butt can often be found for $1.79 in my area so I usually go with that. Now you will have to determine how much pork you need for how many meals you want to get out of it and how many people will be eating. Remember the meat will shrink after the fats are reduced. If you do chicken I like to use a mixture of breast and skinless thighs.
-14oz of green Verde sauce… again this will be broken down so whatever is cheapest.
-1/4 to 1/2 white onion, rough chopped.
-1 red bell pepper(optional)
-1 green bell pepper(optional)
-salt and pepper to taste.

Take your slow cooker and set it on high.
Line the bottom of the cooker with the chopped onion and sliced peppers.
Set your pork butt/loin, or chicken on top of the vegetables with the fat side facing up.
Pour your jar of verde over the meat.
Lightly salt(please use a good salt not table salt) and pepper.

Quicker method:
Put the lid on and walk away!!! Check after 4 hours… if it starts to shred without much effort it is done. If not let it go for another 2 hours then turn the temp to “keep warm.”

Slower method(for people who are away from home a lot):
Or if you cant keep an eye on it…. after adding everything, use the “low” setting and let it go for 8 hours or more.

Serve over rice/tortillas/or whatever you like. Chop cilantro, onion, lime and or whatever you like when serving!

Also, if you want crispier “carnitias style” burnt ends on the pork, take the meat and do a quick dry pan fry the crispier ends.

I have fed 6 people with this recipe with enough left over for another FULL meal using a 4.5lb shoulder for around $15!!!! Minus sides
