Free Healthy Recipe - Baked Spiced Chicken

Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

Thanks to Ian Hemphill, our spice guru from Herbies who suggested this spice mix when I told him I needed a delicious finger lickin' chicken.
Organic chicken is more expensive than caged chicken but the taste and texture is far superior and it contains up to 58% less fat.

1 organic chicken cut into 8 pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin seeds, roughly ground
1 tsp coriander seed, ground
pinch black pepper
lemon to serve

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
Remove the skin from the chicken and place in a bowl with the olive oil and spices. Toss the pieces through the spice mixture to coat evenly.

Place the chicken on a baking tray, making sure there's space between each piece (use 2 trays if you need to).
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes before reducing the heat to 170C and baking for a further 30 minutes.

Note: Cumin may help to reduce elevated blood sugar levels and cholesterol and may help to inhibit detrimental bacteria in the gut. Ground cumin should be khaki coloured and not brown.

Makes 4 servings (serve = 2 pieces chicken)
