Looking to do some summer grilling? How about this za’atar grilled chicken? Za’atar is a Mediterranean spice blend that includes thyme, oregano, sumac and sesame seeds; it’s just packed with flavour and it makes for one tasty marinade for grilled meats! The za’atar is really the star of the show here but it need some oil along with a healthy dose of lemon juice and garlic to turn it into a super tasty marinade for the chicken! You just need to marinate the chicken in the za’atar, lemon and garlic marinade and grill it up! It’s that simple! In the photos I served the za’atar grilled chicken with grilled green onions, kalamata olives, za’atar grilled naan and a fresh batch of homemade easy hummus for a nice light, healthy and tasty summer meal!
