Lime Chicken Thighs with Pineapple Salsa
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3/4 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Juice from 1 lime
2 tsp avocado oil or other high-heat oil
1/4 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 tbs fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Juice from 1/2 lime
Heat oven to 350°. Trim visible fat from chicken thighs.
In a small bowl, combine chipotle powder, garlic, and cumin.
Squeeze lime over the tops of chicken thighs and sprinkle heavily with the spice blend. Rub to coat the tops of thighs well.
Heat an oven-proof skillet on the stove over high heat. Add oil and swirl skillet to coat.
Sear chicken thighs in the skillet, about 2 min per side. Place skillet in the oven to finish cooking, 5 to 10 min. Chicken is done when a thermometer inserted in the center reads 165°.
While chicken is cooking, prepare the salsa. Combine red onion, pineapple, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime in a bowl.
Once the chicken is done remove from oven and serve with pineapple salsa. Serves 2
