If you’re not a fan of tahini, continue reading because you can substitute it for another ingredient 😉 This chicken recipe uses very few ingredients but let me tell you, it tastes like it has many and the flavor is wonderful. The tahini gives it a great texture and almost a nutty flavor. The lime juice and garlic just add a different level. We use tahini a lot and I was first introduced to it 34 years ago when I met my husband. We use it for everything from hummus to pastries.
WHAT IS TAHINI you ask:
If you’ve never heard of it; tahini is a Middle Eastern condiment that’s made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds. It is eaten by itself or used as a major ingredient in hummus, baba ghanoush, and even desserts. Alone it has a lighter color than peanut butter, but it doesn't taste like peanut butter. It’s not sweet like nut butters, but it does have a nutty flavor and it’s a little more strong and earthier than most nut butters. The taste alone is not the same as when it’s added to other ingredients. We love it! If you are familiar with it and not a fan, I recommend substituting it for plain Greek yogurt. It will work just as well.
Thank you for stopping by.
