A blend of dried herbs, spices and sesame, za’atar makes this dish utterly moreish.

Share recipe


  • 4 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp za'atar
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 8 chicken thighs, skin on and bone in


Step 1

Mix together the honey, za’atar and garlic granules – we’ve used garlic granules in this recipe, as fresh garlic burns easily on a hot barbecue, which can leave a bitter taste. Season and divide the mixture between two large bowls.

Step 2

Add the chicken thighs to one of the bowls – keep stirring and turning until they are all coated in the honey mix.

Step 3

Next, place the thighs skin side down on a hot barbecue for 3 mins, then turn and cook the undersides for another 3 mins.

Step 4

Baste the tops with some fresh marinade from the second bowl, then turn and cook for 1 min more, basting the undersides.

Step 5

Repeat this process of turning and basting every 1 min for 4 mins more, or until the meat is cooked through, and serve straight away.

Step 6

TIP: If you prefer, oven-cook for 15-20 mins at 200ºC/180ºC fan/6 gas, or until juices run clear, then finish on the barbecue for 3-4 mins.
