READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Rellish

i found this recipe online somewhere and i tried it and it was awesome!! really easy and really good. if you like spiced and flavorful food, this is a great recipe to try. a note to the cook: i always put the chicken in a pan with the juices and put it directly in oven. you might have to cook it a few minutes longer, but it always comes out delicious.

The spices were great on this chicken. I only had chicken legs so that is what I used and I roasted them in my cast iron skillet with new potatoes. When the chicken was done roasting, I placed my skillet back on the stove and I deglazed the pan with a little butter and lemon juice. This dish was wonderful! Thanks for posting!
