I love throwing together easy, simple ingredients to make a delicious dinner for myself and my fiance.
On this particular night, I wanted to make something Moroccan spiced to go with my new cous cous craze and this is kind of what I came up with and Mike and I were pretty pleased with the results. Definitely going to keep this one around for time to come! I love throwing things in the oven and then coming back later and dinner is pretty much done. It also gives you an opportunity to clean up all of the mess that you created (which I tend to do quite a lot) in the process.
Ok! Lets get started.
Ingredients: Serves 2.
4 chicken thighs (this makes a big dinner! if you are a girl, like me, you may just want 1 chicken thigh for yourself. keep the remaining in the fridge to slice for a sanger. brill!)
2 teaspoons of moroccan spice
1 teaspoon of garlic powder (optional)
1/2 a cup of plain flour
some olive oil.
Line a baking tray with some baking paper and preheat the oven to about 180 deg C. In a small bowl, blend together flour and spices.
Rub your chicken thighs with about a teaspoon of oil or less per thigh.
Dip each thigh into flour/spice mixture until thoroughly coated and place on baking tray.
Repeat until all chicken is coated.
Chicken after abou 1 hour – golden brown.
Bake in a hot oven for about 1 hour, or until golden and crispy. Occasionally turn then about every 20-30 minutes to evenly brown them.
You could take them out at 1 hour and they would be fine, but if you have some extra time, 1.5 hours turns the thigh meat into a dark golden, lovely colour and the meat literally falls apart.
Chicken after 1.5 hours – dark golden brown and.. amazing.
Serve with cous cous and steamed greens and most of all.. Enjoy!
