I made this simple dish on Friday night. The fresh mediterranean flavor  was an instant hit.

Recipe from Joy of Kosher

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tsp. salt
  • 1 Tsp. pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Za”atar
  • 2 whole chickens, cut up into 1/4s


1  Combine marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken in a large ziploc bag. Swish it around a bit so the pieces are fully saturated. Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours or longer. (Let it go overnight for maximum flavor.)

2 Lay the chicken on a HOT grill, skin side down, for 15 minutes. Turn over and grill for an additional 10 minutes. Remove to a serving platter and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

In the winter months these GRILL PANS are a great  alternative to chilly outdoor cooking :

    I use zata spice on wonton wrappers, bake them with a little olive oil sprinkled on them and serve them in salads.

    I also use Zata as a base for salad dressings. Crush garlic, add lemon juice, salt, crushed red pepper (optional), whisk in olive oil.

    Zaatar is not available where I live. Can I make it from other spices? What are they?
