Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast (cubed)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp cloves

For the Rice:

  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups water or chicken broth
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For the Tomato and Cucumber Salad:

  • 2 cups cucumber (diced (about 1 large cucumber))
  • 2 cups tomato (diced (about 2 medium tomatoes))
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Toppings:

  • Hummus
  • Feta (optional, if not dairy-free)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix together olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, cinnamon, curry powder, salt, black pepper, cloves, and dried thyme. Mix in the chicken cubes and make sure the chicken is covered completely with the spice mixture. Let marinate for 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • To cook the chicken, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Spread chicken out in a single layer on the skillet and cook 5 minutes on each side, until the chicken is cooked through.
  • To make the rice, combine uncooked rice and water/chicken broth in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover pot with a lid and bring down to a simmer. Allow to cook 15-20 minutes, until no water remains and the rice is tender. Fluff with a fork. Mix together rice with fresh parsley, garlic, lemon juice and cumin.
  • To make the cucumber tomato salad, combine diced cucumber, tomatoes, lemon juice, parsley, salt and garlic until combined.
  • To assemble the bowl, layer rice and chicken in a bowl. Top with hummus, cucumber tomato salad and sprinkle with feta.
