This is a meal we make when we are craving a Mediterranean or Halal dish from one of our favorite fast-casual restaurants in downtown Chicago, but we don't want to go out for it. The grain and salad bowl combination hits the nail on the head in terms of being satisfying, comforting, and all around delicious. With a balance of healthy fresh vegetables and the well spiced rice and chicken, this makes a weeknight dinner anything but boring!
Omit the sugar entirely. Use 3/4 Cup of yogurt and 1/4 Cup mayo. Use 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice. 1 teaspoon of white vinegar.
We like to top this dish with hot sauce and parsley or cilantro to taste. It is also great with a dollop of hummus and a sprinkle of feta cheese to elevate it to the next level.
Substitute in romaine lettuce and add cherry tomatoes.
