Anyone else "allergic" to or HATE the taste of cilantro? Are there any substitutions?

I have what my therapist called "classic operant conditioning" with regards to cilantro. I will spare everyone how that came to be, the bottom line of which is that I can not tolerate it. When I am cooking something that has cilantro as an ingredient I either just omit it or add Italian parsley. While the taste is undoubtably different, I have never felt that I was missing anything. As I can't tolerate the taste of the stuff I can see no reason why I would want to substitute something to approximate it!

Oregano-Marinated Grilled Chicken with Charred Lemons

The only problem here is the throwing away of good chicken parts. I put them in a freezer bag and freeze until enough has accumulated to make stock. Waste not, yada yada yada!
