Chef Tips


Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Step 1

Place the chicken parts, potatoes, sweet onion, and green olives on the prepared baking sheet.

In a small bowl, combine the avocado oil, white vinegar, cumin, ground turmeric, paprika, cayenne, saffron threads and garlic. Whisk to combine and drizzle over the content on the baking sheet. Toss until well combined and spread into a single layer. Season all over with salt and pepper.
