Spicy Orange Lime and Cumin Roast Chicken Thighs

30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
10 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a variation of a recipe I learned from http://TheFrugalChef.com. You can do the chicken with skin on or off - up to you. Or mix with drumsticks or whatever you have. I use extra garlic and chilli flakes but use less if you prefer. You could use the juice from an orange or just use ready-prepared orange juice if you are lazy like me. When I say Turkish pepper, I mean the longer skinnier type, about the size of a regular carrot. I have lots of Turkish grocery stores in my neighbourhood and they sell all kinds of peppers. Any of them will do - some are a bit sweet and others a bit spicy, but you don't want the firey type. The chicken will give off some of its own fat and mix with the lime and orange juice. This is nice to pour over some baby potatoes on the side.
