Cumin and Rosemary Chicken

Finally I put a post. I am so excited. I have been gone for quite a while and with good reason.

For starters, we got a new addition to the Leo tunapika? household. My hubby and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl who has been keeping us busy.

Secondly, we sorta moved to the bundus and getting great internet connection has been an uphill task, I don’t get why Zuku hasn’t reached here yet. Anyway what matters is that I can finally blog.

I have found myself hosting on various occasions and since my time is spread out thin I prefer baking.

This recipe is pretty easy and almost hands free. You can choose to use a different combination of spices and herbs. It requires only a handful of ingredients.

cumin chicken1

Ensure you pre heat the oven.

Line your baking tray with  some foil  and lightly grease then sprinkle over the cumin seeds and the dried rosemary leaves. Be generous.

I worked with various chicken pieces however the same recipe can work if you are using only drumsticks or thighs.

Lay the chicken pieces on the tray and coat with the spices. Then place them with the skin side up.

Finally sprinkle over salt and some freshly black ground pepper.

Bake for 25 minutes.

After 25 minutes, turn over the chicken pieces so that they cook on the other side. This will take roughly 15 minutes. Once done, to test if the chicken is cooked, pierce the thickest part of the biggest chicken part, if the juices run clear then the chicken is ready.

Serve and enjoy.

cumin chicken5

Crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Ensure you don’t let it overcook lest the inside becomes dry.

The cumin adds a lovely touch to the chicken.

I served with some roast potatoes and kachumbari.

I love making, plating and eating pancakes.

These plantain pancakes are such a crowd pleaser. I love to serve with some butterscotch sauce and pan fried plantain slices. Delicious. 

Recipe in my cookbook, The Little Veggie Cookbook. Order via the link on my profile.

I was gifted some salmon by @ibrahims_butchery and I made it for dinner.
They currently have an offer on salmon. 

It's my first time making salmon, yep! 

It's a play on garlic butter salmon though I used olive oil instead since I didn't have butter.

Absolutely delicious.

I served with lyonnaise potatoes (recipe on my feed) and some garlicky french beans (recipe in my cookbook)
