Ingredients:

  • 4 Chicken breasts

  • 2 Garlic cloves (minced)

  • 1 Bunch of mint (washed and chopped)

  • 1 Cucumber

  • 1 cups Spiralized carrots

  • 1 cup Spiralized beets

  • 1 can Chickpeas (drained and rinsed)

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 3-4 TBSP Madras masala spice mix

  • 2 Cups cooked brown rice or quinoa (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. 

  • On a lined sheet pan, toss the spiralized vegetables, chickpeas and ⅔ of the garlic with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer.

  • Pat the chicken dry with paper towel and season with the remaining spice blend and S&P; nestle the chicken between the vegetables on the sheet pan. Roast, 20 to 25 minutes, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

  • While the chicken cooks, grate the cucumber. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; finely chop the leaves. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumber, ½ the mint and as much of the remaining garlic as you’d like; season generously with S&P to taste.

  • Divide the chicken, rice, vegetables and chickpeas between your plates. Garnish with the remaining mint and serve with the raita on the side.

  • 1 Serving: 1 chicken breast the size of your palm. 1/2 cup rice or quinoa, 1/2 cup vegetable blend and dollop of raita (yogurt).
