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?
