Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 cup of water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the oregano pesto and fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the chicken & lemon
While the rice cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan on medium-high. Halve the lemon. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken to the pan and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. In the last 3 minutes of cooking add the lemon halves, cut sides down. Transfer the chicken and lemon to a plate, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Squeeze half the grilled lemon over the chicken.

Cook the broccolini
While the chicken cooks, cut off and discard the stem ends off the broccolini. Drizzle the broccolini stalks with oil and season with S&P. Place the broccolini in another large pan, on medium-high. Cook, flipping occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until the broccolini is lightly charred and softened. Transfer to a plate.
