za’atar spiced chicken breast-recipe

This week’s za’atar spiced chicken breast recipe is inspired by my recent trip to Israel.

On our walk through the shuk there were so many gorgeous flavours and smells and the most incredible food stalls to see. The flavour that I really loved was za’atar. It’s on a lot of the savoury baked goods and is absolutely delicious.

So you can imagine my delight when I found za’atar spice on South African soil at Woolworths (there are other places where you can get it…)! So this week’s recipe includes za’tar  and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did. Let me know how it goes, Leanne x

Za’atar spiced chicken breasts

4 thinly sliced chicken breasts (if you don’t have the thinly sliced ones then use two regular ones and adjust the cooking time)

2 tsp olive oil

½ Tbsp za’atar spice

½ tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp lemon zest

Pink Himalayan salt


  1. Mix the chicken breasts and all the spices together and marinade in the fridge for about half an hour (or more if you have the time)
  2. Season with salt just before cooking
  3. Braai or cook in a pre-heated, hot pan for 8 – 12 minutes (this will be longer if you are using chicken breasts that aren’t thinly sliced)

NOTE: we ate our chicken breasts with hummus and an Israeli style chopped salad, which was absolutely delicious!!
