Spice up your chicken with some Middle Eastern flair!
I have always loved spicing up my food. I’m not talking pouring hot sauce over everything, although I do that… quite a lot. I mean using actual spices while cooking. Experimenting with different types of flavors is the best way to keep dinner interesting! I love trying new foods and getting creative cooking at home. Lately I’ve been really loving Middle Eastern style meals, so I brought it into my own kitchen.
This recipe is so easy to put together and so full of flavor! I used bay leaves, cumin, cayenne, and a little nutmeg. Start by coating the chicken in olive oil and then sprinkling with the spices and herbs. Cook over medium-high heat on a skillet for about 10 minutes. Make sure it is cooked through and then serve!
I chose to pair my Lebanese chicken with a lentil-pea mash. This whole dinner was simple yet memorable! Recipes like this prove it doesn’t take many ingredients to put something healthy and delicious together.
