Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F and wash and dry all produce. Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch thick half-moons. Roughly chop parsley. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Stir together half the yogurt with the lemon juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Combine Moroccan spice blend and remaining yogurt in a large bowl. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the large bowl with yogurt mixture and toss to combine. Set aside.


Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then rice and currants. Cook, stirring often, until toasted, 2-3 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4ppl) and broth concentrate(s). Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then chicken. Cook, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Bake, in the middle of the oven, until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.** Carefully rinse and wipe pan clean.


Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then zucchini. Cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in lemon zest and half the parsley. Season with salt. Thinly slice chicken. Divide jeweled rice between plates. Top with zucchini and chicken. Spoon lemony yogurt over chicken and sprinkle with remaining parsley. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
