Peruvian Style Roasted Chicken w/ Sweet Onions


Aromatic chicken dish is short on prep and big on flavor. It's also a great dish t make ahead the day before and reheat -- it's even tastier after the flavors meld. Serve with rice and a green salad.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Oil a large roasting pan and set aside. In a small bowl, combine paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, garlic, vinegar and oil to make a paste. Place onions in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoon of the paste. Rub chicken pieces with remaining paste and place in prepared pan, then cover with onions, peppers and lemon. Roast, basting occasionally with pan juices, until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are very tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
