Anita's Morrocan Spiced Chicken

This recipe is courtesy of Anita - hence the post title - Anita's Morrocan Chicken.

Anita and my brother are classmates and we all live in the same neighbourhood back home and she currently resides in New Zealand.  She shared this recipe over the FB and I always like simple and easy recipes.

I love the smell of paprika when it was baking.  Lets look at the recipe.

Ingredients
1 heaped tbsp good smoked paprika
1 heaped tsp ground cumin
Salt and black pepper to taste
2-4 tbsp olive oil
12 chicken drumsticks
6 medium potatoes cut into 1-2cm slices - I omitted this as I ran out of potato

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Mix everything in a large baking dish until combined and coated.

3. Bake for 45min-1hr until cooked. Turn chicken after 30 min & mix potatoes once/twice during cooking

4. Eat with couscous/rice or just by itself. Yummy.
 
For a nice twist, add grated zest of one orange and juice of one orange into marinade. Even more yummy.

Enjoy
