Libanese flatbread with lima bean spread and grilled baharat chicken

Published on 6 August 2020 at 15:09

Lately I have been trying out recipes with spices and mixtures that are unformiliar to me . A really easy way to do so, are the spice blends from Euroma by Jonnie Boer (only available in the Netherlands). This recipe with baharat was a major succes! Baharat is a spice blend that contains paprika, cinnamon, coriander seeds, cumin, nutmeg, clove and cardamom. Fun fact: baharat actually means 'spices' in Arabic. It's warm and fragrant and goes so well with meat, vegetables and hummus. 

In this recipe I have seasoned the chicken thighs with the baharat, and paired it with a creamy lima beans spread and some grilled courgette. To top it off I added some spicy garden cress. It's super easy, but full of flavour and packed with nutrition!

RECIPE (2 persons)

Ingredients spread:

  • 400gr canned lima beans
  • ½  ts chili powder
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs lemon juice (± half a lemon)


  • 4 small Libanese flatbreads 
  • 400gr chicken thighs, sliced 
  • 1 courgette, sliced
  • 2 ts baharat spice mix 
  • Garden cress and/or sliced chili to garnish 


  1. Mix together the chicken thigh and the baharat, and let it marinate until use.
  2. For the spread: drain the canned beans but preserve the fluid. Mix all the ingredients together with a blender. If the paste is too thick to blend, add some of the preserved fluid of the beans. Add salt to taste and set aside.
  3. Grill the chicken in 1 tbs of olive oil for around 8-10 minutes on high until cooked. Scrape off the crunchy brown bits on the bottom of your pan now and then, they will taste amazing!
  4. Meanwhile season the courgette with salt and pepper and grill the courgette slices in a frying pan for 3 minutes per side.
  5. Bake the libanese flatbreads according to the package for 1 to 2 minutes in a preheated oven.
  6. Spread the lima bean spread on the bread and top with the grilled courgette, chicken and garden cress. If you like to roll it up as a burrito, you need two per person. Or if you prefer it like a pizza, one should be sufficient.
