  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper

  • Marinate chicken: Mince and mash garlic to a paste with ½ teaspoon salt, then transfer to a large bowl. Stir in olive oil, lime juice and cumin. Toss chicken within marinade until coated. Cover, put in the fridge and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat at 425°F.

  • Continue roasting until the chicken is cooked through, about 40 minutes more and serve.
