This dish was inspired by the fragrance of zatar and how easy oven chicken dishes can be. This is a nutricious and lowfat dinner.


  1. 1Preheat oven to 475 degrees. In the meantime, begin by cubing sweet potatoes and cutting onion into medium thick crescents. Brush the bottom of a 11X14 oven dish (or any other oven-proof dish) with olive oil.
  2. 2Cut open pitas and tear off pieces; place on the bottom of oiled dish.
  3. 3Place cubed sweet potatoes and onions over torn pita pieces
  4. 4Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of zatar spice over everything
  5. 5Place chicken pieces over vegetables and pita (their should be three “layers:” pita pieces, sweet potatoes & onions and chicken)
  6. 6Season chicken and in between generously with salt and pepper
