WWDH - Tahini, cumin and buttermilk marinated chicken
For Wednesday with Donna Hay this week, Sarah chose Tahini, Cumin and Buttermilk Marinated Chicken, from p26 of Donna Hay Magazine Issue 68, April/May 2013.
I was not sure how this combination would go - the tahini, buttermilk and cumin mixture is used to coat chicken thighs before baking. However, I need not have worried, as the end result is a moist, flavoursome, nutty tasting chicken.
I served my chicken with Baby Bok Choy, Sugar Snaps and Garlic en Papillote, a future FFWD assignment, and microwave-baked sweet potato.
If you are interested in making this chicken dish, you will need:
1/2 cup of buttermilk
1/4 cup of tahini paste
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
4 chicken thighs, skin on and bone in
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of jasmine rice
1/4 cup of slivered almonds
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
Place the buttermilk, tahini, juice from half the lemon, garlic and cumin in a bowl and mix to combine. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Place the chicken in a non-stick baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes.
