Roast Chicken with Sumac, Za’atar and Lemon

image

The combination of sumac, Za’atar and lemon really gets the taste buds tingling!

I serve this with crusty bread and a green salad, simple and delicious.

Ingredients

1.5kg chicken, cut into 8-10 pieces

2 lemons

1 onion, peeled and finely sliced

1 tablespoon sumac

2 tablespoons Za’atar

60mls olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Method

In a large bowl, pour the juice of 1 lemon.

Take the second lemon, slice finely and add to the bowl.

Add the finely sliced onion, sumac, 1 tablespoon of Za’atar, olive oil and salt and pepper, combine well.

Add the chicken to the bowl and mix really well.

Set aside to marinade for 2-24 hours in the fridge.

Preheat oven to 190 degrees Centigrade.

Place the chicken skin side up in a roasting tin, top with the onion and lemon slices.

Place in the oven and roast for 40mins basting regularly.

Serve warm or at room temperature with a light sprinkling of sumac, lemon wedges and bread to soak up the juices.
