Middle Eastern Grilled Chicken

Can I just say, these were absolutely delicious!!  I mean that from the bottom of my heart!!
I know they were winners, when the kids, (who by the way hate dark meat chicken), polished these babies off in a heart beat and kept saying what an awesome flavor they had!! I say SCORE!!  A mother's dream  To have her family love them, and know they she is serving them healthy, and delicious food!!

I wanted something different, you know...
While I was raiding my spice pantry I rememberd that awesome Middle Eastern Spice mix I had told you about a little bit ago?  Dukkah Remember my post with my excursion to the farmers market with my friend Kecia?  This one.  Breaded, Baked Chicken Cutlet Rolls with Dukkah (Low Fat & Delicious)

My friend from the farmer's market makes the best, most amazing variety of Dukkah's you have ever seen, and his love of his culture, along with the love placed into his product?  Well it's next to none!!
If you place an order, please place from him!!  His quality is the best I have ever bought, and I love my Dukkah.  Heck I was introduced to it from my patients, and they always give me the best!!  His, I am here to tell you, is the best!! 
Here is his Facebook page, I am sure he will ship!

So I decided to grill.  Yes, yes, I did!!
Ready for this very simple recipe?  Here we go;

6 chicken thighs
1/3 cup Dukkah
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin

-Place your chicken thighs into a medium bowl.  Add your lime zest along with your lime juice.  Set aside.

-Mix the rest of your ingredients into a small bowl and sprinkle onto your chicken thighs, making sure both sides are covered.
Cover with plastic wrap, and let marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

-After 1 hour, place on pre-heated grill grates.

-Grill to internal temperature is 165F and you can't wait to dig in!!

I know right?  My family loves me!! So will yours...

Till next time!

  1. And... BTW we need to go back. I went a couple weeks ago and saw that Dukkah and thought of our visit! ♥

    1. I know, we must before the weather turns!! It was such fun!!

  2. Oh Didi...we are two peas in a pod! Not only do I love Middle Eastern spices, but we just enjoyed one of our favorite chicken recipes made with za'taar which we brought back from the Arab market in Jerusalem! I adore your chicken and can't wait to make it!!!

    1. Going to Jerusalem Linda has always been on my bucket list!! I have yet to find za'taar here locally. But I have recently discovered an international grocery store that is heavily leaning towards the Middle Eastern. Maybe I will find it there!!

  3. The chicken looks wonderful! I keep wanting to make dukkah, but i keep forgetting. So I think I might just break down and buy some...

    1. I was planning on making it too, but never got around to it. When I saw it at the farmer's market, I thought; "this is coming home with me". I'm so glad I bought it!!

    2. What is dukkah?

    3. It's a mixture of spices, the name Dukkah is actually a link anonymous telling you exactly the spices in it.

  4. How can we prepare dukkah ourselves?

    1. Hi Anonymous and welcome to my little world!! My favorite most "original" recipe that my patient's gave me was identical to this youtube video I am linking. If you are anything like me, you are visual, and I love to see and taste!!
