Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Serves: 4

Ingredients
8 chicken thighs, with the skins left on
500g potatoes, cut into quarters
1 medium red onion, coarsely chopped
1 green pepper, coarsely chopped
1 lemon
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp ground cumin
2 tsp dried thyme
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt
Black pepper

Method
  • Preheat the oven: Electric 190°c/ fan 170°c/ gas mark 5.
  • To begin, prepare the onion, green pepper and potatoes. Then lightly score the chicken skins with a sharp knife.
  • Place the chicken, onion, green pepper, minced garlic, thyme, spices and oil into a bowl. Add as much salt and pepper as you require.

  • Mix together, then transfer the contents of the bowl into a roasting tin. Ensure the chicken thighs are skin side up. Then add the potatoes around the chicken pieces.
