Tahini Target

0 Comment

Target could mean two things for an American. It could mean an object or person that is being aimed for an attack or one of America’s largest chain of stores. But we’re not here to discuss the first definition, we’re here about the second one. And of course, we will discuss tahini too. So, here we are, about to discuss tahini target.


Tahini is one of the things you can buy from Target, as they offer almost anything. But what this company does not offer though is a tahini recipe that you can make out of your tahini. So, I’ll be teaching you a tahini sauce and roasted chicken recipe. And oh, by the way, you can also buy chicken at Target!

Tahini Sauce for Roasted Chicken Recipe

What you need:

2 garlic cloves (smashed)

1 cup parsley leaves with tender stems

1/2 cup tahini

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 lbs chicken breast or chicken legs, with bone

1 lemon (remove seeds and slice thinly)

2 garlic cloves (smashed and chopped)

1 tbps sumac

freshly ground pepper

1 1/2 tsps ground allspice

2 medium red onions (sliced)

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 cup pine nuts

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth or water

Kosher salt

1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling

2 tbps za’atar

6 pieces lavash or other flatbread

2 tbps unsalted butter




Put garlic, parsley, tahini, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup water in a food processor. Add water continually to achieve the consistency that you want. Season with salt and pepper for taste. Set aside

Preheat your oven to 400°. Put chicken, onions, garlic, lemon, sumac, allspice, cinnamon, broth, and 1/4 cup oil inside a resealable plastic bag. You can add salt and pepper for taste. Put the plastic bag inside the fridge to let the marinade sip in.

Prepare your baking sheet, put the chicken and marinade inside. Add the onions, garlic and lemon. Make sure that the chicken is drizzled with the marinade all over. Add za’atar, and then roast for at least 55 minutes.

In a frying pan, melt butter. When the butter has melted and is hot enough, add the pine nuts. Make sure to stir it often and gently. Do not burn them, just cook them until they turn golden brown. If you want a salty taste, add salt.

Now, everything is ready to be serve. Put chicken on a platter, and top it with the roasted pine nuts. Drizzle it with lavash and tahini sauce, and viola, you got a masterpiece!


For a better taste, you can marinade the chicken one day ahead. This will allow the marinade to really sip in on the chicken, and enhance its flavour. You can also make the tahini sauce in advance. The tahini sauce will last for at least 3 days, if stored properly.
