An exciting and flavourful chicken dish that combines the bold, earthy flavours of zaatar spice with a zesty and spicy tang. In this recipe, tender chicken pieces are marinated in a vibrant mixture of zaatar, tangy sumac, and a mild warmth of Aleppo pepper.
Zaatar, known for its aromatic blend of herbs, sesame seeds, and sumac, infuses the chicken with a unique Mediterranean essence. The tangy element comes from sumac, which adds brightness and a refreshing kick, while the spiciness, delivered by Aleppo pepper, provides an exciting and warm dimension while not being too spicy.
Marinated chicken is cooked to perfection, resulting in a mouthwatering fusion of flavours and textures.
