- Prepare outdoor grill for medium-high heat or grill pan over medium-high. Heat small skillet over medium.

Immediately transfer seeds into mini food processor and pulse until almost ground, about 10 times.

Arrange chicken on grill rack. Grill until thermometer inserted into center of chicken registers 165°F, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Place chicken on platter and tent with foil to keep warm.
