This recipe just hits the spot every time I make it. You don’t even miss the spice, although the cayenne does add a subtle kick. The lemon juice, sumac and oregano all add a flair you won’t be able to get enough of, and the combination of this Lemon Oregano Chicken with pita bread, fattoush, and hummus is just amazing. If I’m making one thing, you better bet I’m making all the fix ins to go with it! Bbq is the way to go, but it you’re stuck in the midwest in the peak of winter, a grill pan or frying pan will get the job done as well.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pound boneless chicken fillets, butterflied or cut into cubes
1 Tblspn crushed garlic
1 tsp dried oregano leaves
1 Tblspn sumac
3 Tblspn fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt(add more if needed)
1/4 tsp black pepper
Marinate the chicken in all the ingredients for no more than 10-15 minutes, The lemon juice will make the chicken rubbery if you leave it too long. Just grill the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, then serve. It’s is simple, it’s almost hard to believe. This no fuss recipe goes great with all the amazing recipes I’ve linked and mentioned up above. Enjoy!
Making a double batch and refrigeration it for wraps and salads is a great way to get through a tough week.
