Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions
If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry, and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” pieces. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 8-10 minutes.
If using shrimp, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes.
If using steak strips or flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes.
Bake the Chicken
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Pat chicken thighs dry. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
Combine chicken thighs, onion, seasoning blend, ¼ tsp. salt, and 1 tsp. olive oil in provided tray. Spread into an even layer.
Bake uncovered in hot oven until chicken begins to brown, 10-12 minutes.
Add the Rice and Spinach
Carefully massage rice in bag to break up any clumps. Tear a small slit in an upper corner of bag to vent. Place upright in microwave and heat, 45 seconds. Remove rice from packaging.
Carefully remove tray from oven. Top chicken with rice and 2 Tbsp. water and stir to combine. Spread into an even layer.
Top rice evenly with spinach, 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Bake the Dish
Bake again uncovered in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
Carefully remove tray from oven. Stir meal until combined, then top with tzatziki sauce. Bon appétit!
