A simple and fresh weeknight supper. Fresh garlic, cumin, coriander and crunchy pine nuts spice up everyday rice and tomatoes.


COOK rice according to package directions. Set aside.

WHISK together garlic, lemon juice, white vinegar, cumin, coriander, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

PLACE chicken in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Pour 1/2 the marinade/dressing over the chicken. Marinade for at least 20 minutes. Set remaining dressing aside.

HEAT a large skillet over medium high. Add chicken and cook for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

FLUFF rice with a fork and place in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, pine nuts, remaining dressing and parsley. Stir to combine. Serve rice topped with chicken pieces or simply toss together.
