Zaatar is a middle eastern spice mix made from thyme, sesame seeds, sumac and salt. It's pretty easy to source these days and is available from most good delis and greengrocers. Liguria Olives are petite olives which traditionally came from Liguria in Italy (near the French border.) They are allowed to ripen on the tree until they are brown, purplish or black.

2 fennel bulbs sliced
1 Spanish onion sliced finely
1 chilli pepper - fresh finely diced
1 red capsicum sliced
320 grams chicken thigh, skin and fat trimmed
2 tbs zatar spice mix
2 cups baby English spinach, washed

Coat both sides of the chicken in the zatar mix.
Pour the olive oil into a baking tray and place in the oven to heat up for 5 minutes.
