Baked Za'atar Chicken Thighs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Advertisement
In a bowl, mix together the za'atar, salt, and olive oil until the consistency of a thick paste. Add chicken thighs to the bowl, and toss to coat liberally on all sides. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
Za'atar typically already contains salt, so take note of how salty your spice mix is and then season with additional salt accordingly. I cover the chicken very liberally with the mixture and don't leave anything left in the bowl. It may seem like a lot, but trust me - it works and it's delicious! Even my 3 year old loves it.
