Come up with some flavor combos for chicken marinade (riffing off Sam Sifton's Chicken Schwarma)
What are some combinations of spices that would work well to marinate boneless chicken thighs for a few hours?
Sam Sifton ran a recipe in the NYTimes a few weeks ago for chicken schwarma. It was EXTREMELY easy and EXTREMELY delicious. Mix some olive oil and lemon juice and a half dozen spices in a zip-loc. Throw in some boneless chicken thighs. Marinate for a few hours. Throw in the oven on a sheet pan (without the zip-loc) for a half-hour or so.
Anyway, with a 3 year old (1 week older than Clara) and a 1 year old, I'm always looking for easy, delicious, make–ahead dishes. So, what combinations of flavors could I use? For example, I could go simple Italian and use olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt.
So, what else?
