4 chicken thighs
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 pound rainbow* or regular carrots, peeled and cut into thirds diagonally
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup Marcona almonds or other whole blanched and toasted almonds


1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a medium bowl, mix chicken with 2 tbsp. oil, the spices, and 1/2 tsp. salt.

2. Heat remaining 1 tbsp. oil in a large ovenproof frying pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken skin side down until skin is crisped, about 4 minutes; transfer to a plate.

3. Add carrots to pan and cook, stirring often, until starting to soften, about 4 minutes. Add raisins, almonds, and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt. Set chicken skin side up on top of carrots.

4. Roast until carrots are browned and chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes.

*Rainbow carrots, sold at farmers' markets and some supermarkets, taste just like regular carrots but add a mix of bright colors.
