Spiced Roasted Chicken Breast















Spiced Roasted Chicken Breast
(we doubled this recipe)

  • 2 chicken breast halves
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 450°F.
Pat chicken dry. Stir together spices, salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons oil and rub evenly all over chicken. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in an ovenproof heavy skillet (preferably cast iron) over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then brown chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer skillet to middle of oven and roast chicken, skin side up, until just cooked through, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Add water to pan and deglaze over high heat, scraping up brown bits. Pour pan juices over chicken.

This is a great recipe and simple to make!  Everyone in our home really enjoyed it.
