Total Time 35minutes
1Chicken BreastPounded thin (not paper thin, but like a schnitzel)
1cupRiceWhite, Brown, or Wild. Adjust boil times to suit your rice
25gramsKhmeli SuneliGeorgian seasoning mix
100gramsMushroomssliced, white button is what I used
2tbspBalsamic GlassaI used storebought but you can make it yourself by reducing balsamic vinaigrette about 50%
Avocado Tahini Sauce
1tspBlack Pepperfreshly cracked
.5tspSaltor to taste
Since the rice takes the longest, start with that. Put a cup of rice in a pot and add 1.5 cups of water. Give it a stir then bring up to a boil, add the lid, and then turn the heat down to a simmer.
Add your vegetables to a bowl along with the balsamic glassa. Give everything a good toss and a sprinkle of salt. Place into an oven preheated to 200 Celsius. These will roast for 20 minutes. Don't slice your mushrooms paper thin, about half a cm is good.
Take your chicken breast and pound it out thin-ish. About a cm thickness is good. Press the Khmeli Suneli seasoning onto both sides.
In a skillet add the olive oil and bring the heat up high. Turn the heat to medium and grill the chicken breast on both sides, about 3-4 minutes a side. Set aside.
Add the Avocado Tahini Sauce ingredients to a blender (or a mixing bowl if you want to do it by hand) and let it get creamy. If by hand then mash the avocado and tahini together with the spices, then slowly whisk in the heavy cream.
Slice your chicken breast into thin strips. Time to plate.
In a bowl or dish add a layer of rice. Then add the chicken, roast balsamic vegetables, some fresh diced avocado, and then a drizzle of the avocado tahini sauce. Enjoy!
This surprisingly holds really well in the fridge. Keep the sauce separate if you want to save it, but this makes a great meal-prep meal for the week. Just change scale to suit your needs.
