Chicken with Tomato Cucumber Salsa

ctcs2

This may not seem very appetizing but the flavor is incredible!!

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 plum tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

In a small bowl, combine the oregano, cumin and corriander and 1/4 tsp of the salt. Rub the chicken with the spice mixture, drizzle with oil and cook in a non-stick skillet on medium heat.
While the chicken is cooking, make the salsa : combine the tomato, cucumber, parsley, vinegar, pepper and remaining salt. Refrigerate salsa till chicken is done. After chicken is cooked, spoon salsa over chicken and serve.
I actually made 10 times the amount of the spice mixture and put it in an extra salt shaker to keep on hand. When I make this chicken, I just shake a little of the spices on while it is cooking.
