Roasted Moroccan Spiced Chicken

"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."

    I ran across this recipe from an email my Father (who passed away). I never knew he cooked his own meals, with all the order out slips I found in his kitchen. But, he did, as I did. I love cooking, and this is going to be a welcome surprise for my mouth and tummy. I love chicken! Thanks, Father!

    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!

    Tender, juicy, and full of flavor! This was lemony and spicy and oh so good. I cut the backbone out of the chicken and flattened it (I think spatchcock?). Anyway, it only took 35 minutes to cook that way and looks great. Other than that, followed the directions.
