Dukkah is a blend of spices, nuts and seeds that makes a flavourful crust for grilled chicken and helps lock in moisture. Look for it in Middle Eastern grocery stores.

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 6), cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup dukkah
  • 1 small zucchini , cut in long thin ribbons
  • 1 small red onion , cut in 1-inch pieces

Method

In large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, tahini, lemon juice, salt (if using) and pepper. Add chicken, turning to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place dukkah in shallow dish; spoon 1 tbsp into small bowl and set aside. Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess drip off. Dredge chicken in dukkah, pressing to adhere; discard leftover marinade and unreserved dukkah.

Alternately thread chicken, zucchini and red onion onto 6 metal or soaked wooden skewers. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place skewers on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer to serving platter; sprinkle reserved dukkah over top. 

BEER PAIRING: Muskoka Brewery (Bracebridge, Ont.)
Craft Lager: This crisp lager brightens and tempers the spices in the dukkah rub.
