Cut the chicken breasts in half then place them into the marinade. Mix until chicken is well coated.
Place the chicken in a medium baking dish (9x11) then place cubed potatoes and carrots. You can let the veggies coat in the marinade as well for flavor.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 450F for a half an hour, then remove the aluminum foil and bake at 250F for another half an hour.

To ensure even baking, cut the chicken breasts into the same size.You can let the chicken sit in the marinade for as little as 30 minutes, or as long as overnight for enhanced flavor. It's better to use ground cumin rather than whole cumin seed so that the flavor disperses evenly.Taste the marinade before adding the raw chicken in and add more salt if needed.
