Do the Dukkah Chicken

with Sweet Potatoes and Snap Peas

Read more

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.

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut sweet potato 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 potato is tender and dukkah is golden brown, 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through.


Zest and halve lime. Mix sour cream, a pinch of lime 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.


Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in center and dukkah is browned but not burnt, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest.


Heat another drizzle of olive oil in same pan over medium heat. Add snap peas and toss until tender and lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


Divide sweet potatoes between plates, then top with chicken and snap peas. Drizzle with citrus crema and serve.
