    I had not tried Zatar seasoning before and DH & I loved it...the nice thing was that it was an easy dish to make for only 2 people...I did have left over breading but I just saved it and made the chicken again the next week

    A great tasting chicken dish! I enjoyed using panko crumbs and za'atar spice for the first time. I had to increase the amounts for the coating process probably by at least double most likely because I had huge chicken breasts. I did end up with some leftover coating crumb mixture though.

    This recipe came together quickly and easily. It was simply delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except that I only had a 1/3 of the panko for the recipe, I thought I had more so I subsituted plain bread crumbs. This recipe will deffinetly go into heavy roation in our family.

    This is a terrific recipe. I made it for company and they left with a copy of the recipe and a baggie of za'atar!

    We agree with all the other reviews. We loved it at our house! It's easy to cut down to two portions - other than reducing ingredients I made it exactly as written. The extra squirt of lemon to finish just added an additional wonderful flavor. My husband kept remarking on

    Really good. I think I would increase the amount of za'atar and sesame seeds next time for just a little extra added flavor. The lemon was the perfect touch and the chicken came out cooked perfectly. Served with potato cilantro tunisian brik (also on myrecipes) and a mixed veggie which I tossed with a bit of olive oil and additional za'atar. Now I just need to find more recipes with za'atar since I have a huge bag left lol.

    This is pretty tasty, and easy to prepare. It does work best if you get everything ready to go before you start breading the chicken. I used whole-wheat panko, and it's best right after it comes out of the oven; if you have leftovers, the panko loses its crunchiness. The first time I made this, I left out the sesame seeds (I forgot to buy them) but they were in the za'atar I had. I've also substituted Ethiopian berbere for the za'atar (omitting the sesame seeds), and this would be good with other spice blends as well.

    This was very good; I really liked the taste of the zaatar blend. I pounded my chicken breasts to tenderize and facilitate even cooking and served with brussels sprouts. I will make again.
