This is it. I posted on facebook that I was trying a new recipe for grilled chicken that had zesty zaatar spice and lemon. It was easy and super tasty. Chicken with zaatar is not the most common combination but it works really well on the barbeque.
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons zaatar spice
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 pieces of chicken
2 lemons, cut into 4 wedges
2 large Vidalia onions, cut into thick slices
Whisk together oil, zaatar, lemon juice, zest, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken and turn to coat. Let marinate for at least 1 hour.
Heat grill to medium – 350 to 450 degrees. Grill chicken, skin side down, until browned, 5 to 8 minutes; watch for flare-ups and move chicken to a cooler spot if needed. Turn chicken and grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes.
Grill lemon wedges and onion in last few minutes, turning once, until grill marks appear on the lemon and the onions are cooked through. Serve with chicken.
