Mojo Chicken With Smashed Potatoes and Spinach-Tomato Saute

Mojo Chicken

12-15 sprigs fresh cilantro (rinsed)
1 cup mojo marinade
2 teaspoons roasted garlic
1 whole cut-up chicken (3 1/2 lb)

1. Preheat 2-sided tabletop grill. Chop cilantro leaves finely (1/4 cup); place in large microwave-safe bowl. Stir in marinade and garlic. Reserve and set aside 1/4 cup of mixture for basting.
2. Add chicken (wash hands) and stir until evenly coated. Cover and microwave on HIGH 4 minutes, stirring once, or until chicken begins to get hot.
3. Place chicken on grill (wash hands), discarding marinade that has come in contact with raw chicken. Close lid and begin to grill chicken. Brush top of chicken, with reserved marinade only, every five minutes. Grill 18–20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. (If using a regular grill, double cooking time; turning once.) Serve. (Makes 6 servings.)
