  • In a small bowl, combine cumin, smoked paprika, brown sugar, coriander, ½ teaspoon salt, pepper, cayenne and 1½ tablespoon olive oil. Rub the spice mixture over the chicken thighs. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine potatoes, ½ tsp salt, red bell pepper, shallot and 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potato mixture to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the chicken broth, cover the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 5 minutes. Uncover and nestle the chicken thighs into the potato mixture.
  • Cover and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with the parsley. Serve.
