This lemon and za'atar chicken dish is one of the most exciting offerings on the menu of Sesame, a London restaurant that is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, specifically the street food of Israel.
Served in skewer form, the chicken is sprinkled with za'atar, a hugely popular Middle Eastern herb blend that consists of dried and ground thyme, sesame seeds and sumac. This seasoning is extremely versatile and can be used sprinkled on cheese or savory pies and can also be used as a dip for pita bread.
The addition of lemon adds a zesty and fresh ting that helps bring together the meat and herb topping. This lemon and za'atar chicken is a truly mouthwatering dish that stays true to Middle Eastern street food tradition.
