Servings: 4
Prep: 10 minutes
Total: 25 minutes


4 sprigs rosemary
8 ounces|250 grams chicken hearts (about 20)
4 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup tahini
2 tablespoons picked marjoram
1 garlic clove
1 lemon, juiced, plus wedges for serving


1. Remove most of the needles from the rosemary, leaving just a few at the end. Skewer 5 hearts per sprig and drizzle with half of the olive oil. Season all over with salt and pepper.

2. Light a grill. Add the chicken heart skewers and cook, turning as needed, until charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, the marjoram, garlic, and lemon juice until find (you could also do this in a food processor). Season with salt and pepper.

4. To serve, spread the tahini among 4 plates. Top each plate with a chicken skewer and squeeze over some more lemon juice. Drizzle with the sauce and serve immediately.
