Green Veggie Bowl with Chicken & Lemon-Tahini Dressing
Whisk tahini and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl until smooth. Add lemon juice, minced garlic, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt and whisk to combine. Set aside.Advertisement
Trim green beans and cut in half. Break broccoli into florets. Measure 1 cup (reserve the rest for another use).
Season chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm.
Wipe out the pan and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add sliced garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then add the broccoli and green beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Stir in kale and add the remaining 2 tablespoons water. Cover and steam until the vegetables are tender-crisp, 1 to 2 minutes.
Slice the chicken.
To serve, divide rice and the vegetables among 4 bowls and top with the chicken. Drizzle with the reserved dressing and sprinkle with cilantro.
To make ahead: Refrigerate dressing (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
