Yogurt Lemon and Mint Grilled Chicken
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know I adore middle eastern cuisine and I adore Lebanese food! Like all Levantine cuisines, Lebanese cuisine utilizes a mix of vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains and olive oil with lean meats and seafood. The clean and fresh flavors of the region have always appealed to me and it definitely fits with my goal of eating a more nutrient dense diet. So when Melissa’s Produce invited me to a signing of Julie Ann Sageer’s new book, “Julie Taboulie’s Lebanese Kitchen” I couldn’t say “yes” fast enough! If you like Lebanese food, or are interested in learning more about it, I highly recommend you add this to your collection!
Filled with classic Lebanese dishes like tabouleh, hummus and kibbeh, the book is a wonderful primer on Lebanese cuisine. But I warn you, you may find yourself bookmarking just about every page! The dishes are very approachable and most of the ingredients you can find in your local market. This book however, is a great excuse to pay a visit to your local middle eastern market and, armed with my”10 Things to Buy at the Middle Eastern Market” list stock up – because once you make this chicken, you’re going to want to make the other recipes!
A simple marinade of yogurt, lemon, garlic and herbs infuses the chicken with subtle flavors. Oh, and the best part? The marinade doubles as a sauce for the chicken! This Yogurt, Lemon and Mint grilled Chicken not only makes a delicious dinner, but the leftovers are ideal in sandwiches (think pita bread stuffed with chicken, lettuce and tomatoes and drizzled with some of the sauce) or thrown into your favorite salad.. or just eaten cold from the fridge.. not of course that I know anything about that……
So, I’ll give you a little tip… double the recipe!
