Milk Street Facebook community member Jessica G., of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, makes a fantastic traybake of za’atar-seasoned chicken parts, cauliflower and potatoes, all roasted together on the same baking sheet. A cut-up lemon at the center of it all—literally, to protect the chunks against scorching from the oven’s heat—yields tangy-sweet juice and fragrant oils that flavor a tahini-enriched pan sauce. Quick-pickled carrot served on the side adds a pop of bright color and flavor. Jessica suggests a rice accompaniment or offering flatbread for wrapping pieces of chicken, vegetables and pickle.

Tip

Don’t marinate the chicken for longer than about 1 hour or the acidity of the lemon juice may begin to “cook” the chicken, turning the meat firm and opaque.
