The warm spices of this one-pan dinner complement the roasted carrots.

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Very nice! I've made several other recipes with these kind of spices and we always enjoy them. Would be very pretty with multi colored carrots, but only had the regular, but fresh from Farmer's Market, so very flavorful. Used more of each spice and added a little smoked paprika as we like robust flavors. Served with whole wheat cous cous . Would make a nice presentation for a dinner party if served with something green, like asparagus or green beans, esp with the various colored carrots is you can find them!

Yum and so easy! The Marcona almonds were tough to find. After 2 other stores, I found some at Trader Joe's s seasoned with rosemary. Thought it couldn't be too bad with chicken and it was delicious. I just omitted the 1/2 t of salt at the end since the almonds were so salty...perfection!

Saw this in Sunset and had to give it a try. It turned out delicious. Think next time I will up the seasoning amounts on the coriander and cumin.

Loved it!!!! Will definitely increase the cumin, cinnamon and coriander next go around. Let's see what happens when I do that.

Made this tonight and it was a huge hit. The flavors were wonderful. Loved the Marcona almonds for texture and the raisins for a slight sweetness. Will definitely make again but will cut the olive oil in half and increase the spices to heaping 1/2 teaspoons.
