Wash produce before use
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.
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.
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.
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.
- Time the chicken and kale.
- Measure the cucumber and onion.
- Strip and tear the mint leaves.
- Assemble the salad.
- Garnish the salad with mint.
