Peel the potatoes and cut them into wedges.
Add the potatoes to an oven safe baking dish, followed by thinly sliced onions.
Separately, combine the cinnamon, smoked paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the garlic, pomegranate molasses, tomato paste, lemon juice, and olive oil to the spices. Thoroughly mix the ingredients to make the marinade.
Pour half of the marinade over the potatoes and onions and mix it together.
Separately, slice into the skin of the chicken diagonally. This will help you get an even distribution of the marinade.
Place the chicken on top of the potatoes and pour the remaining marinade overtop of it.
Bake in the oven covered for 45 minutes at 400 degrees F. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until skin is is crispy and chicken is cooked through. Feel free to place it on broil for a few minutes to really crisp up the skin.
Serve immediately. Feel free to garnish with fresh herbs to add a pop of color to the plate!
