Peruvian Chicken Thighs with Spicy Cilantro Sauce Salad

Peruvian Chicken Thighs with Spicy Cilantro Sauce Salad

I’ve made this delicious recipe before from The New York Times by Melissa Clark and it is delicious. I used thighs, but breasts or the whole chicken work just as well. I cooked the chicken for two night’s dinner. The first night, my husband and I ate it hot with asparagus.

The second night, I turned it into a salad. I spiralized yellow and green zucchini, steamed and chilled the asparagus and added pickled onions to the vegetables. Fantastic and perfect for a hot, humid summer night!
