za'atar chicken baked over peppers

I recently found the spice blend za'atar and now I want to sprinkle it over everything I eat...well, maybe not everything, but a bunch! You can find the blend in some specialty shops, online, or you can make your own (recipe). This recipe uses corn flakes as a crispy shell, one of my favorite coatings, and peppers as a base of the baking to infuse the sweet and spicy flavors into the chicken.

Ingredients (3 dinner servings):
1.5 cups greek yogurt
2 tbs za'atar
salt & pepper to taste
1 lb organic chicken breast, sliced
2 red peppers, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
2 cups corn flakes, crushed 
3 tbs butter, melted

1. Add greek yogurt, za'atar, salt, pepper, and sliced chicken breast to a large ziploc. Shake and mix, let marinate in fridge for 30 minutes. *Don't be alarmed when your chicken looks an icky-green color*

2. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking pan with the sliced peppers.


3. Remove chicken from the fridge, wipe of extra greek yogurt and dunk in the corn flakes before laying over pieces of peppers.


4. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken and bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, until crisped on the top and fully cooked.
