Dukkha is an amazing blend of spices and nuts that is very useful to have on hand. Moist chicken with crispy bits and tender zucchini, try this chicken marinated in tahini and rubbed with dukkha seasoning. I guarantee it won’t be the only time you try it!
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp liquid honey
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb of boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 small zucchini, cut into long thin ribbons (use a vegetable peeler)
1 small onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup Dukkah
In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend well, and add the chicken pieces.
(This can be done ahead of time, and marinated for up to 24 hours)
When ready to assemble, remove chicken from marinade, (discard excess) and dredge in Dukkah.
Create an assembly line of zucchini ribbons, onion and chicken …..
Alternately thread chicken, zucchini and onion onto skewers. This can be done ahead and kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
Place skewers on greased grill over medium heat, close lid and grill – turning until browned.
Transfer to a serving platter, scatter more Dukkah over top and serve with lemon wedges.
If you live in a larger city, I’m sure you can pick up Dukkah seasoning in any Middle Eastern grocery store. If not, check out my recipe for Dukkah, I like to keep it in my pantry.
