Chicken Thighs with Cilantro Sauce

This recipe comes from "Cooking Light Magazine". It has a bit of an Asian flair. The recipe only takes about 15-20 minutes total and is full of flavor and a special treat for a weeknight meal. The points value is 7+ for two thighs, which is great. If you opt for one thigh, it is 4+. 

serves 4 ( 2 thighs and 1 T. sauce = 7 points+)

  • 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs ( about 2 lbs.)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 T. finely chopped onion or shallot
  • 1 tsp. crushed garlic
  • 1/3 c. chopped, fresh cilantro ( I think I used more)
  • 1-1/2 T. dark sesame oil
  • 1 T. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Sriracha sauce ( hot chile sauce)
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lime rind

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with nonstick spray. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 tsp. salt. Add to pan and cook until browned on one side ( about 6-7 minutes). Turn and cook until chicken is done. Place chicken on a platter. 
Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended. Serve about 1-1/2 tsp. cilantro mixture over each chicken thigh.
