Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper and the baharat spice blend.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the garlic and start the salad. 

2

Prep the garlic; cook the kale

  • Thinly slice the garlic.

In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the kale and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the kale is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

3

Make the tzatziki-cucumber salad

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then crosswise into enough ¼-inch-thick half-moons to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.

In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and half the mint. Add the tzatziki base and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the tzatziki-cucumber salad and kale to individual plates. Top the kale with the chicken, garnish the salad with the remaining mint, and serve.
