Ingredients

52Cde10172F70 Row Poultry 48 960X640 346X318
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves (with skin), each about 8 ounces
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound grape tomatoes
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or pushed through a press
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • Marinade:
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Instructions

    In the kitchen:

  • 01 In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  • 02 Add the oil and tomatoes to the cast-iron frying pan and stir to coat. Cook over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until the tomatoes begin to break down, 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chickpeas, cumin, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes and stir to combine. Continue to cook, with the lid closed, until the tomatoes release their juices and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. During the last minute of cooking the tomatoes, add the cilantro.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (175° to 230°C) and preheat a 12-inch cast-iron frying pan over indirect heat for 10 minutes.
  • 02 While the tomatoes are cooking, grill the chicken. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken, skin side down first, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the meat is firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the centre, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 03 Serve the chicken warm with the tomato mixture spooned over the top
