DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F
  • Mix the first five ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour 1 teaspoon of the spiced oil mixture into a small bowl, whisk in the yogurt and set this aside for the table sauce.
  • Place the chicken on a rimmed sheet or baking dish large enough to accommodate all the pieces without overlap. Rub 2 tablespoons of the spiced oil mixture over the chicken.
  • Add the chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of the cilantro to the remaining spiced oil mixture and toss to coat. Pour the mixture around the chicken pieces. Season everything with salt and pepper.
  • Roast until the chicken is cooked through, about 20-30 minutes. If you are using skin-on cuts, you can place the dish under the broiler for a minute or two (no more!) for a final browning. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cilantro.
  • When plating up, dress each chicken piece with a generous spoonful of the chickpea and tomatoes. Serve with the yogurt sauce. This dish goes well with rice or a loaf of good crusty bread.
