    1. 1
      Combine spices and set aside.
    2. 2
      Mince one of the strips of lemon zest, then on your cutting board, add 1 teaspoon minced garlic and scrape and chop them together to form a paste; set aside.
    3. 3
      Season chicken liberally with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Heat oil in a Dutch oven, over medium high heat, brown chicken on all sides until a deep golden color, about 10 minutes; remove and set aside.
    5. 5
      Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the Dutch oven; add onion and the remaining 2 strips of lemon zest; cook, stirring occasionally until onions begin to brown at the edges, about 5 to 7 minutes (add a tablespoon of water if the bottom of the pan gets too dark and looks like it will burn).

      Add remaining 4 teaspoons minced garlic, cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.
    7. 7
      Add spices and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute; stir in broth and honey, scraping bottom of pot to loosen the browned bits.
    8. 8
      Remove skin from chicken; if using both white and dark meat, add the dark meat first and simmer 5 minutes, over medium heat.
    9. 9
      Add carrots and breast meat (if using) on top, along with accumulated juices; cover and simmer, over medium low heat, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, 10 to 15 minutes.

      Transfer chicken to a plate or bowl and tent with foil.
    11. 11
