Cumin-Spiced Baked Chicken


We all have those nights when cooking is quite literally the last thing we feel like doing. That’s when baked entrees are all the more appealing! This cumin-spiced baked chicken dish takes less than 5 minutes to prep and will cook while you relax. It’s a great dish for lazy evenings, or for when guests are over and you need to whip up a tasty meal without spending hours in the kitchen.

What’s more, cumin provides an abundance of natural iron, magnesium and calcium. Sprinkle it on generously!


1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons cumin seeds
2-3 organic chicken thighs


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a baking dish, place the coconut oil, garlic, apricots, coconut milk and cumin seeds and stir to make a paste.
Add the raw chicken thighs and coat them in the paste.

Cumin-Spiced Baked Chicken PreCooked

Place the chicken dish in the over for 45-50 minutes.
Remove from the oven temporarily, flip the thighs and stir the liquid in the baking dish, drizzling it over the chicken before placing the dish back in the oven for about an hour, or until the flesh is well-done.
Remove from the oven, plate immediately and serve hot with vegetables or a side salad.

That’s chicken-ala-cumin! Enjoy,
