1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add sweet potatoes, half the onions, 1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to an unlined baking sheet. Season with pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until golden-brown, 18-22 min.

2

Meanwhile, heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining onions. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add rice, 1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1 1/4 cups water (dbl both for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, 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.

3

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) While almonds toast, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with Turkish Spice Blend and remaining garlic salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with pepper. When almonds are done, transfer to a plate and set aside.

4

Using the same pan, increase heat to medium-high. Add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer chicken to another unlined baking sheet. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**

5

Meanwhile, zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Roughly chop parsley. Add yogurt, half the parsley, 1 tsp lemon zest, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.

6

Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in almonds and remaining parsley. Season with salt, to taste. Slice chicken. Divide rice between plates, then top with sweet potatoes and chicken. Spoon yogurt sauce over top. Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
