Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the first six (6) ingredients. Whisk in the olive oil.
  2. Add to the vinaigrette the tomatoes, green pepper, cucumber, parsley and coriander; cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator.
  3. Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Take a fork and pierce each thigh 2 or 3 times. This will allow the Italian dressing to infuse the thighs with delicious flavors. Set aside.
  4. Adjust the oven rack six (6) inches from the heating element and preheat the oven to BROIL. Spray the broiler pan with cooking spray.
  5. Arrange the chicken pieces on the prepared broiler pan. Brush the tops with Italian dressing; reserving some of the dressing for basting.
  6. Broil in preheated oven, turning and frequently basting with remaining Italian dressing, 4 - 5 minutes on each side or until tender and juices run clear.
  7. Arrange on warmed serving platter; spoon vinaigrette over top of chicken thighs.
