1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F and wash and dry all produce.

Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. 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.

2

Add rice to the pot of boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.

3

While rice cooks, stir together 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 marinade and toss to combine. Set aside.

4

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), 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.

5

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

6

Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in lemon zest, half the parsley and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt. Thinly slice chicken. Divide herby 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.
