Expert Tips

Chicken skin helps keep the chicken moist while baking, but can keep the flavor from soaking into the meat. If desired, remove the chicken skin before marinating and instead, cover chicken pieces individually with a single layer of foil after marinating to lock in the moisture while baking.

Sprinkle a little extra cumin (and if desired, salt and pepper) on the top of each chicken piece before baking for a brighter presentation and deeper flavor.
