  • 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. 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a medium bowl, mix chicken with 2 tbsp. oil, the spices, and 1/2 tsp. salt.
  2. 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. 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. 4. Roast until carrots are browned and chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  5. *Rainbow carrots, sold at farmers' markets and some supermarkets, taste just like regular carrots but add a mix of bright colors.
