  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice, half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for chicken), 1 cup water, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 14-17 minutes. Remove from burner, fluff rice, and stir in 1 tsp. olive oil. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into very thin slices. Core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice. Trim cucumbers, halve lengthwise, then cut into 1/2" half-moons. Pat chicken thighs dry, and season with remaining seasoning blend, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Rub oil and seasoning into thighs. Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium heat.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    Place red cabbage, carrot slices, red wine vinegar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in a medium mixing bowl and toss to coat.

  4. 4

    Grill the Chicken

    Coat grill with cooking spray. Place chicken on hot grill and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. Remove chicken from grill and let rest 3-5 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make the Salad

    Place tomatoes, cucumber, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in another medium mixing bowl and stir to coat.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Slice chicken thighs into thin slices. Place rice on a plate or in a bowl and top with salad and slaw. Place sliced chicken thighs on top.
