(If cooking in the skillet, coat the pan with cooking spray. Cook chicken 6 minutes on one side until brown, then flip and cook another 4 minutes until done).

Step 2

Combine the remaining 1/4 teasopon salt, shallots, and garlic in a mortar and pestle; smash mixture to make a paste. (Alternately you can use a mini food processor).

This goes into my favorite recipes. Lovely smooth flavour. I used a generous teaspoon of Franks Hot Sauce. I fried the chicken in a skillet. 3/4 cooked it then spread on the cilantro sauce & popped it in a 350 oven for 15 minutes. The result was flavour loaded, tender. moist chicken thighs that were truly enjoyed
