Moraccan Chicken

Here's a yummy chicken dish that requires a little bit of work up front but then at the end you can pop it in the oven and go relax for 30-45 minutes. I recommend a good book and a large glass of wine.

pkg of boneless thigh
pkg of drumsticks

Spice blend:
2 t ground coriander
1 T ground cumin
1 t paprika
1 t tumeric
1/2 t cayenne
1/4  t cinnamon
1/4 t crushed red pepper
1/2 t salt

olive oil
1 large onion chopped
4 garlic cloves minced
1 cup chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes
1 lemon, juiced and 1/2 sliced

Preheat oven to 420

Mix the spices and rub both sides of each chicken piece.

Heat 2 T oil in large oven proof skillet, brown the chicken pieces 3 minutes per side. Set aside.

In same skillet, heat 1 T oil and add onion and cook for 2  minutes, add the garlic and stir. Add the broth, lemon juice and tomatoes--stir and let simmer for a couple minutes. Nestle the chicken back into the pan with the lemon slices and put into oven.

Bake 30 to 45 minutes.
