Boil water and marinate chicken
  • Add 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 cups) water and stock powder to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, combine Moroccan Spice Blend, half the garlic salt and half the yogurt in a large bowl. (NOTE: Reserve remaining yogurt for sauce in step 3.)
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then add to the large bowl with yogurt marinade. Toss to coat.

Cook rice
  • Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low.
  • Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
  • Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Prep and make lemony yogurt
  • Meanwhile, halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half-moons.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Roughly chop parsley
  • Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
  • Add remaining yogurt, lemon juice and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Set aside.
Cook chicken
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then chicken. Cook until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side.
  • Remove the pan from heat, then transfer chicken to an unlined baking sheet.
  • Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-14 min.**
  • Carefully rinse and wipe the pan clean.
Cook veggies
  • Reheat the same pan over medium-high.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil, then zucchini and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min.
  • Season with remaining garlic salt and pepper.
Finish and serve
  • Fluff rice with a fork, then add lemon zest, half the parsley and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter. Season with salt, then stir to combine.
  • Thinly slice chicken.
  • Divide zesty rice between plates. Top with veggies and chicken.
  • Spoon lemony yogurt over chicken. Sprinkle remaining parsley over top.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.

If you've opted to get chicken thighs, prepare, cook and plate them in the same way the recipe instructs you to prepare and cook the chicken breasts.
