Peruvian-Style Roast Chicken With Sweet Onions

This wonderfully aromatic chicken dish is short on prep and big on flavor. It’s also a great dish to make ahead the day before and reheat — it’s even tastier after the flavors meld. Serve with rice and salad. From Whole Foods Market.

    Made this tonight for dinner, followed the recipe without changes. Terrific! I did add green olives to the plate, because I thought they would be perfect with the other flavors, and that worked so well that I will add olives to the baking pan next time I make it. And, there will be a next time! Used boneless thighs because they were on sale today at the food store. Fabulous.

    I found this recipe in the newspaper. Followed it exactly except made half the recipe and used 3 thigh portions. This is so delicious! Definitely a winner and I highly recommend it. Can't wait to make it again!

    I love this recipe!! I originally got it off of the Whole Foods site and was going to post it here, but found out someone beat me to it. There are a couple of things that I do differently. I use a large pack of all chicken thighs (usually about 10 thighs total) and I place the onions in the roasting pan first, then layer the chicken, peppers and lemons. I cook my thighs about 45 minutes total. I have also subbed thinly sliced orange for the lemon with excellent results. Goes great with roasted purple potatoes.
