Grilled Zaatar Chicken Breast

Hello everyone! So a lot of you have asked me to make some savory dishes and here I am! This is a Grilled Zaatar Chicken Breast with some lemony flavor that goes really well with it! This was my first attempt at making something like that so I just made a small portion but my family loved it!

Chicken is my favorite protein source. I prefer over meat and fish so yeah expect a lot more chicken recipes than the other protein sources.

Servings 2


  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp zaatar mix
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • zest of 1 small lemon
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 small potatoes


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil, zaatar, sesame seeds. lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and coat them well with the marinade. 

  2. Grease a pan with a bit of olive oil and add the chicken breasts. Cook on medium heat for about 7 mins on each side or until they're fully cooked. I Covered the pan while cooking to speed up the process. 

  3. In the mean time, chop the onion and set aside. Add the potato to a boiling water and cook for around 3-4 mins until soft. No need to be fully cooked now.

  4. When Chicken is done, transfer to a plate. Add the chopped onion to the same pan and cook until browned (about 5 mins). Then add the potato and cook until they're completely done (check with a fork).

  5. Serve with a side salad and enjoy!
