Tunisian-Style Chicken Thighs

Recipe by Outta Here

The original recipe called for breasts, but we prefer boneless thighs. Cooking time does not include marinating time.

This was very good, but much better reheated. I'm not sure whether it's a question of my needing to marinade it longer (mine had about 4 hours) or what. But it definitely improved the second day. Served it with a vinegar-based cabbage slaw and whole-wheat couscous.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat a 9 x 13-inch roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the marinade (pepper through white wine) and mix thoroughly.
  3. Place 1/3 of the marinade in prepared roasting pan. Add the chicken on top of the marinade then cover with the remaining marinade mixture.
  4. Cover and allow to marinate for at least 60 minutes (all day in the refrigerator is better).
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Uncover the pan and transfer to oven.
  7. Bake 45 minutes, turning occasionally to brown the chicken all over.
  8. Transfer the chicken pieces to a serving plate. Garnish with parsley lemon slices and green olives.
  9. Serve with hot, cooked rice or cooked couscous.
