For the Chicken

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, turmeric, curry powder, cinnamon and salt in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • Place chicken thighs in large ZipLock bag, and then pour marinade into bag. Shake bag to cover chicken and place in fridge for at least an hour, but ideally overnight.
