DIRECTIONS

  • Combine cumin, paprika, cayenne, turmeric, black pepper, salt, garlic, and lemon juice in a bowl and mix.
  • Rub this mixture over the chicken pieces, including into flaps and along leg bones.
  • Place the pieces in a shallow baking dish, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside (I refrigerate) for at least 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400F (200C) and brush the tops of the chicken pieces with oil.
  • Bake 20 minutes.
  • Turn the pieces over and bake another 25 minutes or until tender.
  • Baste the chicken with drippings 3 or 4 times.
  • If there is sauce remaining after baking (I say "if" because I've never done this part!), pour it into a small pot and boil until somewhat reduced.
  • Arrange chicken on a platter and pour the reduced sauce over them.
