Grilled Chick Orange Green Olive Relish
Mark Boughton Photography


Grilled Chicken
8 (7 - 8 ounce) bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 orange, sectioned
1/2 cup chopped, pitted green olives
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon cracked coriander seeds


  1. Rub chicken breasts with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Build a fire in your grill. When flames have died down, charcoal is covered with gray ash, and fire is medium-hot, grill chicken directly over coals, turning once, until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side. To check for doneness, make a small cut in the thickest part of the largest breast to be sure it is opaque all the way through.
  2. To prepare relish, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with chicken.
