Say goodbye to boring, dry baked chicken and embrace the new kid on the block – this tender, juicy, flavor-packed all star za’atar chicken! It’s just as easy to prepare, but ten times tastier. Spice up your weeknight dinner routine tonight!
See ya later boring baked chicken, there’s a new rockstar in town – All Star Za’atar Chicken. Can I get a hell yes? YES!
Za’atar has been hot on my radar for years, ever since I fell in love with the magic of middle eastern cuisine about ten years ago. Za’atar is a woodsy and tangy spice combination used to season any number of middle eastern dishes. I love it sprinkled over hummus (either classic or cauliflower hummus) or as a dry rub for salmon, but it really comes to life in in this baked chicken recipe. Chicken breasts get doubly infused with za’atar seasoning, first in the marinade, and then as a condiment.
This spice and yogurt marinated chicken is going to shake up your dinner routine in the most delicious way possible using just 5 whole food ingredients, five minutes of prep time, and a 20-minute trip through the oven. This zippy chicken is going to rock your taste buds. It’s moist. It’s tender. It’s jam-packed with flavor and super versatile. And most importantly, the recipe is 100% foolproof.
