2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs rinsed and patted dry
1/2 cup avocado oil
3 garlic cloves minced
2 lemons juiced
1 tablespoon coriander powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon ground cardamom
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
1 English cucumber chopped
1 small red onion thinly sliced
1/2 head romaine lettuce chopped
1/2 head butter lettuce chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
1 cup tahini sauce see notes
3 tablespoons water may need more/less depending on thickness of tahini
In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients until well combined.
Place chicken thighs into a gallon zipper bag and pour the marinade over the chicken pieces. Rub the marinade into the chicken with your hands. Be sure to release all of the air out of the bag and seal it shut. Transfer to the refrigerator to marinade. It needs at least 4 hours, but if you have time, let it sit overnight.
