Zahatar Baked Chicken Thighs

Boneless chicken thighs are very economical & extremely tasty. They are easy to cook & the meat is tender & moist, unless you really overcook it!! I like mine nice & brown so I always cook them longer then any recipe suggests.  I had some tabbouleh in the fridge & knew that a middle eastern themed chicken would go nicely. This is a very simple way to prepare the chicken thighs & doesn’t really need a ‘recipe’ but here it is.***I wasn’t going to write this up as a blog post but it was very good so I decided to. I think you can find Zahatar in most grocery stores now, but if not I looked up a recipe online. I haven’t tried this but this recipe is from

Zahatar Baked Chicken Thighs


8 skinless & boneless chicken thighs

salt & pepper

3 tbsp Zahatar Seasoning

2 tbsp olive oil

juice of 1/2 lemon



  1. Put the chicken things in a single layer in a baking pan , so that they are snug but not overlapping. fI used a pyrex dish
  2. Season all over with some salt & pepper
  3. Sprinkle the Zahatar Seasoning all over the chicken pieces
  4. Pour the olive oil all over. Using a pastry brush, spread the olive oil all over the chicken pieces making sure you coat all of it. Add more olive oil if needed but you don’t want it swimming in olive oil!
  5. Bake at 350f for 3o minutes…basting often
  6. Then pour the lemon juice all over the chicken. Continue cooking for another 15 minutes or until completely cooked and as brown as you would like them!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
