Hi Nicole!

Could you post the Greek potato recipe again?  I didn't join until sometime this year.

So, we've been grilling a lot, because one of our neighbors curbed an almost new charcoal grill for bulk pickup. (he also let folks know it was there to be grabbed) By mixing multiple recipes and working what I liked from them I came up with this one.
Start with a half a teaspoon of coriander seeds. Put them in a small brown paper bag, fold it flat, and roll them with a heavy rolling pin to crush them. Pour them into a half gallon zipper style bag. Do the same crushing with a half a teaspoon of cumin seed. Add in a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon, a teaspoon and a half of kosher salt, and around a cup of crushed garlic.
Zipper and mix well to distribute the spices through the garlic. Put four thawed chicken breasts into the bag, squeeze things around, and then put the bag in the fridge for a few hours to marinade.
Fire up the grill. (either charcoal or gas will do) grill the chicken until done.
Note: it's useful to have a sharp implement to keep other family members from stealing all of them before you get one yourself, as the smell is enough to make folks contemplate food theft. These go great with the Greek Roasted Potatoes recipe I posted here a few years back.
