  • 1. Heat a nonstick or well-seasoned grill pan on stovetop over medium heat until hot. In a small bowl combine oil, coriander, cumin, salt, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. Trim fat from chicken. Brush oil mixture on both sides of chicken thighs.
  • 2. Place chicken in hot grill pan. Cook about 12 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Cut each chicken thigh into 3 pieces.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook fresh beans, covered, in enough boiling water to cover for 10 to 15 minutes or until crisp-tender. If using frozen beans, cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove beans with a slotted spoon;* set aside. Add edamame or lima beans to boiling water. Cover and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until tender. Drain well. Arrange chicken, beans, edamame, avocado, and cheese on salad plates or a platter. Top with dressing. Makes 4 servings.

For Table Top Grill

Preheat grill according to manufacturer's directions. Brush chicken with oil mixture as above. Place chicken on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until chicken is tender and no longer pink. For covered grill, allow 4 to 6 minutes. (For open grill, allow 14 to 18 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.) Cut each thigh into 3 pieces. Continue as directed in Step 3 above.

Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen Tip

If you do not have a slotted spoon, place green or wax beans in a heat-proof strainer. Lower strainer into boiling water and cook as directed above. Lift strainer out of water to drain. Cook edamame or lima beans as directed above.
