It was a matter of slathering some chicken breasts (which I pretty much always have around anyway) with a mixture of yogurt, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and a plethora of enticing spices (again, things that are either in my fridge or my spice cupboard on any given day) and letting it all sit in the fridge overnight. During the day, I popped the chicken into a dish and let it do its thang while I did something else. Then I took a few minutes to slice it thinly, put it back in its baking dish, and then cover it and put it in the fridge until I was ready to make dinner.
Everybody loved them exactly as-is. And me? Well, I stole away with the remaining garlic mayo all for myself. And a little bowl of Kalamata olives. Dip wrap in mayo, pop an olive in my mouth, take glorious free-will-melting bite. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
two for two. So far, this book is rockin' my world. I'm telling you, deceptively simple. And wonderfully delicious.
I am very excited to be taking part in A Mid-East Feast, a 4-week event celebrating the upcoming release of the cookbook An Edible Mosaic: Middle Eastern Fare with Extraordinary Flair by Faith of An Edible Mosaic. Brandy from Nutmeg Nanny is hosting and eight other food bloggers, including myself are participating. Join us as we try a few of Faith's recipes and get cozy with this beautiful book. If you have a moment, stop by and check out everybody's posts and be prepared to get hungry for A Mid-East Feast!
