Lemon and Zatar Chicken with Quinoa
Ingredients
  • Chicken thighs or breasts
  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of Zatar
  • a sprinkle of cayenne pepper
  • a sachet of Merchant Gourmet Red and White Quinoa
  • the juice of half a lemon

Cut the chicken off the bone and fry this in a little oil with 3 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 teaspoon of Zatar (a Middle Eastern spice made from thyme and sesame seeds, available from Bart’s Spices). Add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Open a sachet of Merchant Gourmet Red and White Quinoa (or other cooked quinoa), and add this to the pan. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and stir it through. Season as you like, add an optional handful of spinach leaves and serve immediately. I ate this with a side of steamed broccoli.
