One Pan Moroccan Chicken


My favorite recipes are the ones that present beautifully and have interesting flavors, yet use easy to find ingredients and are really fast to prepare. Also, in true #mylifemymenu fashion all my ingredients are flexible. Don't have chicken thighs? Use a whole chicken. Like things a little spicy? Add some cayenne. I would have like to have added the green olives that I listed below (Yum!) but my picky eaters won't have it. And I'm not making chicken just for myself. I've even swapped out the potatoes for cubed sweet potatoes.

One Pan Moroccan Chicken

Originally posted on Sourced, the Fresh Direct Blog

Ingredients:

6-7 chicken thighs, with the skin with the bone

1 lemon cut in wedges

1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes

2 cups golden baby potatoes

½ Vidalia onion, sliced

1 cup green olives (optional)

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

4 cloves minced garlic

2 teaspoons ground tumeric

1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

1 lemon cut in thin round slices

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375 (or 350 degrees convection).

Take your chicken, lemon wedges, tomatoes, potatoes, onion and olives and place in a large roasting pan. Drizzle your olive oil and sprinkle your garlic, turmeric, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper over the chicken and vegetables. Using a gloved hand massage the spices and oil onto all of the items in your roaster. Make sure everything is well coated. Arrange everything nicely in the pan and then take your remaining lemon slices and lay them out onto your chicken thighs.

Cover the roasting pan and cook for 1 hour. Then remove the cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Plan Ahead:

This dish can be prepped the day before you want to serve and then cooked the day you want to eat. Alternatively, you can cook the dish the day before for 1 hour covered and finish cooking the day of serving uncovered for 20 minutes.
