Roasted Persian Chicken

Roasted Persian Pomegranate Chicken Thighs Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

I love this dish! It has so many different spices that I don’t use everyday. It has a little kick, but it’s very subtle and the orange juice and pomegranates add some sweetness.

  • Chicken:
    • 2 lbs bone-in/skin-on Chicken Thighs
    • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
    • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon All Spice
    • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Clove
    • 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
    • Pinch of Saffron
    • 1/2 cup Orange Juice
    • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Granish:
    • 1/2 cup Pomegranate Seeds
    • 1 large Orange; sliced
    • Mint Leaves for garnish
  1. Place the chicken in a large bowl and drizzle olive oil over top. Mix all of the spices in a small bowl and add it to the chicken. Pour in the orange juice and tossto coat. Cover and chill for 3 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Add chicken to a large baking dish and top with orange slices and half of the Pomegranate seeds. Cover and bake for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F and the juices run clear. Remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the skin is crispy. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Top with the remaining Pomegranate seeds and mint leaves.
  4. Enjoy!
