Coriander Chicken With Cilantro

Ingredients: Serves 2

  • 2  4 ounce boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons grape seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. When hot, add the garlic and ginger. Cook for about 30 seconds and then add the coriander, garam masala, salt and pepper.
