Cook rice

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water, 1/4 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. 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. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Add half the yogurt and lemon juice to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Set aside.

Marinate chicken

Add Moroccan Spice Blend, half the chicken salt and remaining yogurt to a large bowl. Season with pepper, then stir to combine.Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then add to the large bowl with yogurt marinade. Toss to coat.

Cook chicken

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. Remove the pan from heat, then transfer chicken to an unlined baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.** Carefully rinse and wipe the pan clean.

Cook veggies

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

Finish and serve

Fluff rice with a fork, then add lemon zest and 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl). 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. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
