Honey Za’atar Chicken with Chickpeas is such a delicious recipe. It’s full of flavor, is super easy to make, and only takes about a half hour from start to finish! I love this recipe because it’s so easy! What I love about this recipe is the beautiful caramelization that the honey gives the chickpeas. It also gives the chicken a beautiful golden hue when roasted in the oven.
I cannot wait for you to try this recipe. We’re currently in that weird stage between Summer and Fall. I honestly don’t know whether to eat pumpkins or pineapples. So, I’ve been doing my own thing until I see the trees changing. I have SO many fun ideas coming up for Fall. However, until then, this recipe is definitely more than enough to hold us all over.
Have you ever tried za’atar? Za’atar is a Mediterranean spice that is SO delicious. Also, you should be able to find it at your local grocery store! If you are having difficulty finding it, I highly recommend purchasing here. This recipe is full of garlic, smoked paprika, honey, and of course, za’atar – which has a special place in my heart.
Honey za’atar chicken with chickpeas
Let’s talk about this recipe. I’ve been looking for something different to do with chicken. I felt a bit stumped as to what to do with chicken. So many chicken recipes have become mundane, so I decided to spice it up. Literally. I added together honey and smoked paprika and grabbed the za’atar. It was AMAZING.
Also, I love chickpeas. So I decided to open a can of chickpeas and swirl it around in the marinade. Then I roasted them with chicken and WOW – it was SO good. I highly recommend eating this recipe with labneh, as it goes to well with the flavors featured in this dish. Check out this recipe for labneh. If you don’t have time, you can always purchase this in stores as well! (Side note – home made is WAY better!)
Okay, enough rambling, let’s make Honey Za’atar Chicken with Chickpeas!
