Posted by Wine & Spice on 11/30/2015 to Chicken & Poultry


Serves 4


4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs

1 Tbsp Olive Oil, for Cooking

2 Tbsp Zahtar

2 Roma Tomatoes, Diced

1 English Cucumber, Diced

1 Red Bell Pepper, Diced

1/2 Red Onion, Diced

2 Tbsp Fresh Chopped Parsley

1/2 Lemon, Juiced

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

8 Small Flour Tortillas

Plain Yogurt & Dill, if Desired


Preparation:


This is an easy, tasty and fun way to try something new!


Start by mixing together the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, red bell pepper, lemon juice, parsley, 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp Zahtar in a glass bowl.  Stir well and let sit at room temperature until you are ready to use.



Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan.  Sprinkle the chicken thighs with the remaining Zahtar seasoning and a little salt, if desired.



Sauté the chicken about 6 minutes per side until a meat thermometer registers 165ยบ.  Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice thinly.



Warm your tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds.


To serve, place a spoonful of the veggie mixture onto the tortilla and add the sliced chicken.


We served a yogurt sauce made from plain greek yogurt and a little dried dill mixed in, on top of the taco.



Soo flavorful!


Enjoy!
