Preheat the oven to 400°F (to roast the zucchini and chicken). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!


MARINATE CHICKEN Wash and dry all produce. Cut the zucchini into 1/2-inch cubes. Mince or grate the garlic. Roughly chop the cilantro. Zest, then juice the lemon. In a medium bowl, mix the chermoula spice and half the yogurt. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat.


ROAST CHICKEN Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the chicken. Cook until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. Transfer the chicken to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in the centre of the oven until the chicken is cooked through, 14-16 min. (TIP: Cook to a minimum internal temperature of 175°F.)


ROAST ZUCCHINI Meanwhile, toss the zucchini on another baking sheet with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the centre of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until softened, 14-15 min.


COOK RICE Heat a medium pot over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 5-6 min. Add the rice and garlic. Stir for 1 min. Add the broth concentrate(s) and 1 1/3 cups salted water (double for 4 people). Boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until all the water is absorbed, 10-12 min.


MAKE SAUCE Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the lemon zest, 1 tbsp lemon juice (double for 4 people) and remaining yogurt. Season with salt and pepper.


FINISH AND SERVE Fluff the rice with a fork. Stir in half the cilantro. Divide the rice, zucchini and chicken between plates. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Drizzle the yogurt sauce over the chicken.
