Roasted Moroccan-Spiced Grapes and Chicken

Photo: Johnny Autry; Styling: Leigh Ann Ross

Though we usually call for removing skin from dark-meat chicken, here it stays on for delicious flavor, crispy texture, and extra richness. The serving size is small, so saturated fat isn't a problem. The grapes will collapse soon after they come out of the oven, so serve right away.
