Guess what? It’s time for another chef spotlight! My awesome roommate (you know, the one who convinced me to start this whole thing in the first place) decided to pry the knife and cutting board from my cold dead hands in order to take over the kitchen and show me some of her culinary skills. I’m not the only VD resident of 1J with Mediterranean blood running through their veins! This post was all Victoria. Get ready people, this recipe is a sure winner winner chicken dinner.
4 pcs. (cleaned) chicken breast
4 – 6 garlic cloves
Za’atar (with sesame seeds), enough to completely cover the chicken
3 tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 375.
Take the chicken cutlets (or whole pieces of chicken) and place in a pyrex baking square. Cover the cutlets with olive oil and the juice of one lemon. Then, Cover all the chicken with a full layer of za’atar so that the actual chicken is pretty much invisible. Flip the breasts over and cover the other side with za’atar as well.
Garnish with a sparing amount of sea salt, a tablespoon of pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper (adjust if needed depending on your taste buds).
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until the inside of the chicken reaches a temperature of 165 degrees. Serves 4. Enjoy!
