Chef Elizabeth's Sicilian Grilled Chicken w/Mint Sauce
Directions for Chicken:
Cut chicken (either breast or thigh meat is good) crosswise into 1/2" strips. Mix the oil, lemon zest, oregano, salt and pepper. Marinate, refrigerated for up to six hours. When ready to cook, preheat a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Salt the chicken and brown it on one side. Turn and reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue cooking until the chicken is done - breast meat overcooks easily; thigh meat is more forgiving. Remove from the pan and serve with the mint sauce.
Directions for Mint Sauce:
Stir together the minced onion, garlic, salt and vinegar in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Allow ingredients to mellow together about 20 minutes. Wisk in the oil just before serving.
