Dukkah (pronounced DOO-kah) is a great way to bring the crunch. The Egyptian blend of crushed nuts, spices, and seeds is fine enough to sprinkle on like a seasoning, but it has enough rugged texture to keep it satisfyingly crisp. Here, it’s used two ways: to add a coating to butterflied chicken breasts and to bring an extra dash of flavor to roasted sweet potatoes.

Preheat Oven and Roast Sweet Potatoes

1

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes into ½-inch cubes. Toss on a baking sheet with half the dukkah, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until sweet potatoes are tender and dukkah is golden brown, 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through.

Zest lime until you have ½ tsp zest, then cut into halves. Mix sour cream, zest, and a squeeze of lime juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in 1 tsp water to thin. TIP: Add a splash more water if crema still seems thick—it should have a drizzly, saucy consistency.

With your hand on top of one chicken breast, cut ¾ of the way through, parallel to the cutting board, stopping before you slice it completely. Open up chicken like a book, cover with plastic wrap, and pound with a mallet or heavy pan until ½ inch thick. Repeat with other breast. Season all over with salt, pepper, and remaining dukkah.
