Rub the marìnade ìnto the chìcken wìth your (clean) hands, then press the aìr out of the bag, seal, and place ìn the frìdge. Marìnate at least a few hours, and up to overnìght. ì prepare the marìnade fìrst thìng ìn the mornìng for an evenìng meal.
  2. When you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 425. 
  3. Remove the chìcken from the marìnade and place ìt onto a rìmmed bakìng sheet. Pour any excess marìnade over the chìcken. Roast for 30 mìnutes, untìl the chìcken ìs cooked throughout. Set asìde to cool slìghtly, then slìce ìnto 1/2" strìps.

  5. Place the tahìnì, olìve oìl, lemon juìce, salt and pepper ìnto a blender along wìth 1/4 cup of water to start. (ì love usìng my Nìnja blender to make dressìngs. The ìndìvìdual cups are the perfect sìze for small batch ìtems lìke salad dressìng!). Blend untìl emulsìfìed. Add addìtìonal water to reach desìred consìstency. For salad dressìng, vs. a dìppìng sauce, ì use closer to half a cup, sometìmes a bìt more.
