Glaze your plump, juicy chicken in a mix of spiced honey and red wine vinegar tonight, the perfect pairing with comforting spiced rice. You’ll serve it with one of our favourite sides: creamy avocado! In fact we love the smooth flavour and versatility of avocado so much that we’ve partnered with Avocados From Mexico to bring you only the best, perfectly-ripened avocados. Tonight it contrasts beautifully with the crunchy chopped salad—served with a dollop of tzatziki, it puts the crowning touch on this Greek-inspired meal.

Preparation

Cook the rice
Mince the garlic. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add ½ the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P to taste. Set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the chicken
While the rice cooks, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with all but a pinch of the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken thighs* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min. per side, until cooked through (if you received a different cut of chicken, find your alternate cooking method at www.makegoodfood.ca/chicken). While the chicken cooks, in a small bowl, make the sauce by combining the honey, ⅓ of the red wine vinegar, the remaining garlic and 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Add the sauce to the pan of chicken. Cook, 30 sec. to 1 min., flipping the chicken until glazed.

Slice the avocado & serve
Halve the avocado; separate the two halves and carefully remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado flesh and place on a cutting board; thinly slice lengthwise and drizzle with the remaining vinegar. Season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Divide the finished rice between your bowls. Top with the chicken, a spoonful of the chopped salad, the sliced avocado and the tzatziki. Garnish with the remaining parsley. Serve any remaining chopped salad on the side. Bon appétit!
