Challenge Complete

By Joe:

Since the rules required, for the most part,for me to create our meal with items available at the time that the challenge was accepted, I had to substitute some ingredients

3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons ground coriander*
1 1/2 teaspoons herbes de provence**
1 1/2 teaspoons ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 bottle lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

* I don't have coriander so I looked up a substitute for coriander (see next post)

** I don't have herbes de prvence so I looked up a substitute for herbes de provence (see next post)

1. Mix the cumin, coriander, herbes de provence, black pepper and cajun spices together in a small bowl. Place the chicken and garlic in a bowl; sprinkle about 2/3 of the spice mixture over the chicken and toss to coat. Transfer the chicken to a resealable plastic bag. Pour in the lemon juice. Seal and refrigerate for at least 6 hours (it should have be 12 hours but I didn't have time).

2. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with the remaining spice mixture and salt. Coat with olive oil, then arrange the chicken in a large baking dish in one layer.

3. Preheat oven to 350degrees. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160 degrees, depending on how hot and even your oven cooks will determine the amount of time it takes
