Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle, then heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid, with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat
Meanwhile, microwave the steamed pure basmati rice according to packet instructions
Tip: if you're cooking two packets, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly!
Once hot, add the diced chicken to the pan and cook for 3 min
Meanwhile, grate the cucumber into a bowl
Add the natural yoghurt and 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] garlic paste
Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your tzatziki
Add the dried oregano to the pan with the remaining garlic paste and cook for 30 sec further
Meanwhile, dissolve the chicken stock cube[s] in 100ml [180ml] boiled water
Add the baby leaf spinach, chicken stock, black olives, heated rice and the juice of 1/2  lemon and give everything a good mix up
Cook, covered, for 1-2 min further or until the liquid has been absorbed and the chicken is cooked through
Note: please ensure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until there’s no pink meat and it’s piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
Set the Greek chicken rice and tzatziki in the centre of the table, ready to share
Garnish with the lemon wedges, drizzle with olive oil, season with a grind of black pepper and let everyone dig in
