How to make Za'atar Chicken with Grain-free Orzo and Herbed Tahini
The first step in making this recipe is to rub Za'atar spice, paprika, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper all over some chicken and marinate it for a minimum of 30 minutes all the way up to 12 hours. Next, place the chicken in a hot skillet with some oil and pan-sear it until brown on both sides.
While the chicken is browning, make the herbed tahini by placing everything in a food processor and blend. This is a quick and easy dressing that takes about five minutes. The herbed tahini will be drizzled on the chicken after it's done cooking.
Lastly, grain-free orzo from Jovial Foods is added to the skillet with lemon juice and chicken stock before being finished in the oven. Once cooked, drizzle with the herbed tahini and serve with Paleo naan or tortillas for an incredibly easy and delicious weeknight dinner.
