Za’atar Roasted Chicken With Lemons & Olives

Za’atar refers to both the dried leaves of the za’atar plant as well as a blend made with those leaves, sumac, and sesame seeds. Here I start with the pure oregano-like leaves and mix them into a from-scratch blend that’s delicious roasted onto chicken. Lemon and olives roasted with the onions echo the tang of the sumac.
