North African Chicken with Crisped Peppers and Greens*

The moment you walk into your house, preheat the oven to 475F
and slip one large or two smaller shallow pans into it. I use a half
sheet pan.

Serves 2

* 1/2 teaspoon each ground allspice, coriander, and cumin
* 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
* 1 large clove garlic, minced
* 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut
crosswise into 1/2-inch thick sticks
* 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 1 1/2 pounds mixed peppers (my mix: 2 red bell peppers, 1
Anaheim, 2 jalapeno), seeded and thinly sliced
* 2 very big handfuls (about 5 ounces) organic spring mix greens
* 1 small to medium onion, thinly sliced

1. Slip one large or two smaller shallow baking pans into the oven.
Turn heat to 475F.

2. In a large bowl, toss together the spices with a generous amount of black pepper, garlic, chicken, and olive oil. Add the peppers and
greens. Toss to blend.

3. Spread ingredients on the hot baking pan, taking care not to burn
yourself. Make sure pieces are spaced apart to help the crisping
process. Roast 20 to 25 minutes, turning occasionally. Greens should
be crisp, and chicken firm.
