So this weekend I cooked for the whole family. This recipe is perfect for large families coming over for lunch or dinner. All you need to do is marinate the chicken the night before and when you are ready to cook place it in the oven or grill. This dish is loaded with spices, cumin, paprika, dried chilli and coriander.
1 tablespoon crushed chilli
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 onions quartered
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
2 garlic cloves
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoon chopped coriander
125g olive oil
½ lemon juiced
2 kg chicken thighs
salt to season
In a food processor add all the spices, onions, ginger garlic, coriander, bay leaves and lemon. Process until it is a smooth puree.
Place in a bowl for ten minutes to let the flavours develop.
Add the chicken thighs and mix well. Let it marinate in the fridge overnight. (The longer you leave it the better)
Preheat oven to 220ºC for ten minutes or until oven is hot.
Remove two trays and line with non stick baking paper. Place chicken on the trays and place in the oven.
After ten minutes reduce heat to 200º.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked thorough.
