Roasted Chicken with Allspice and Citrus. This gorgeous sheet pan chicken meal is a fabulous way to celebrate fresh citrus!



Total time

45 minutes




  • 6 legs and 2 bone-in skin on chicken breasts (or you can use a whole chicken cut in pieces)
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 meyer lemon
  • 1 satsuma tangerine
  • 1 small Cara Cara orange
  • sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil ((divided))
  • 2 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • a dash of salt and a few grinds of pepper


  1. Set oven to 475F
  2. Cut the chicken breasts in half crosswise.
  3. Wash and dry the citrus fruit. Using a mandoline slicer, slice them between 1/4 and 1/8 inch thick. Remove any seeds. Note: I used all the lemon, but only about half of the other fruits.
  4. Line a baking sheet (the kind with sides) with parchment paper or foil. Set down a few slices of the fruit, and then lay out your chicken pieces, making sure not to crowd the pan. if you are making extra, use another pan rather than crowd the chicken.
  5. Whisk together the sauce ingredients and brush it onto each piece of chicken. Arrange slices of citrus around the chicken. You may not need all the slices.
  6. Shower everything with a little bit of sea salt and some fresh cracked black pepper.
  7. Roast for about 35 minutes. I baste the chicken a couple of times with more sauce.
  8. Serve with more fresh thyme.
