Lemon Oregano Chicken

As promised! Here’s the recipe for Lemon Oregano Chicken. It tastes best when it’s grilled, but you can’t bbq all year round, especially when it rains for weeks at a time (ahemgermanyahem) so all you need is a grill pan. You know the square pan that’s really heavy and has lines on it so you can get the grilled look, and most of the taste too! The combination os pita bread, fattoush, this chicken and hummus or tahina is just ahhhmazing. Please try it all together. It’s worth it!

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 pound boneless chicken fillets, butterflied or cut into cubes

1 T crushed garlic

1 t dried oregano leaves

1 T sumac

3 T fresh lemon juice (you can use concentrated lemon juice, but the fresh one goes a long way with lebanese food)

1/2 t cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste

All you have to do is marinate the chicken in all the ingredients for at least 5 minutes. You don’t have to add the cayenne pepper, but it adds a nice punch of spice! Just grill the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, and eat it as quickly as possible! You can make a pita pocket as well! Just fill the pita with fattoush, chicken, and hummus. If you don’t have all the ingredients for hummus you can just add some tahina paste (sesame seed paste) and you’re good to go!
