  • 1/2 cup Garlic Cilantro Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 cup Jalapeno Infused Olive Oil
  • 2 firm-ripe avocados
  • For the Chicken

  • 1/4 cup Jalapeno Infused Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 chicken breast halves with bone and skin (2 1/2 lbs. total)

Step 1
Make salsa: In a bowl, combine tomatoes, chiles, and green onions. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring Garlic Cilantro Balsamic Vinegar to a boil. Add brown sugar and salt and cook, stirring, until dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Put ginger, garlic, and dry spices in a bowl. In another medium saucepan, heat Jalapeno Infused Olive Oil over medium-high heat until rippling. Add ginger mixture and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in seasoned vinegar, and pour over tomato mixture.

Step 2
Let salsa cool, then cover and chill at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours. About 1 hour before serving, cut avocados into 3/4-in. chunks, add to salsa, and bring to room temperature.

Step 3
Make chicken: In a large bowl, combine Jalapeno Infused Olive Oil, lime juice, and seasonings. Turn chicken in mixture to coat. Let stand at room temperature, turning occasionally, 30 to 45 minutes.

Step 4
Heat a grill to high (450° to 550°). Lift chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill chicken, covered, turning often, until no longer pink in center, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 5
Transfer chicken to a platter and spoon salsa on top, saving half the liquid for another use (such as salad dressing).
