Spiced Orange Roast Chicken

1.2kg chicken thigh fillets

2 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 orange, thinly sliced
Finely chopped fresh chives, to serve

1. Place the chicken in an ovenproof dish. Add the orange juice, honey, oil, garlic, coriander, cumin and turmeric and gently toss until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.

    Since I don’t like orange and chicken together I used lemons instead. Next time I think I’ll leave out the spices though.
