Instructions
  1. In a small bowl or mason jar combine the olive oil, lemon juice, za'atar, garlic, salt and pepper.

  3. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Add chicken and grill, skin side first for 6 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 6 minutes. Continue to turn every six minutes until chicken is done (about 25 minutes total). Remove to a plate and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
