Za’atar Chicken

Jump to recipe

We had friends over for din on the other day & we served this amazing chicken dish. It’s so flavorful and the chicken is really tender & juicy. Have you tried za’atar? It varies greatly depending on where you are in the Middle East and every family has their own secret blend. It is generally a combination of dried oregano, thyme, marjoram, sumac and toasted sesame seeds. Za’atar may also contain salt, dried orange zest, dried dill, or the wild herb za’atar (also called hyssop, which also grows throughout the Levant & is the mixture’s namesake). This spice mix is tangy, rich & nutty, and is a must have in every kitchen! You’re going to love this chicken!
