Cook's Country Spiced Chicken with Couscous - Instructions
Why this recipe works: Pumpkin pie spice, a combination of cinnamon, ginger,
nutmeg, and allspice, combines with cumin to provide the warm spice profile found in
many Moroccan dishes. Serves 4
1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 450 degrees F. Combine cumin,
pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in bowl.
2. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and rub with spice mixture. Heat oil in 12-inch
skillet over medium-high until just smoking. Cook chicken, skin side down, until
browned, about 5 minutes. Arrange chicken, skin side up, in 13-inch by 9-inch baking
dish and roast until meat registers 160 degrees F, about 20 minutes.
