  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp low-fat hummus (optional garnish - if total fat is not under 5 grams it could create a crossover)
  • 2 tbsp 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp Greek seasoning (optional)
  • 1 tbsp reduced-fat feta cheese (optional garnish - if total fat is not under 5 grams it could create a crossover)

  • Combine rice and quinoa in a bowl and squeeze 1/2 a lemon over the grain mixture. Season with optional Greek seasoning if desired and salt and pepper to taste.

For the Chicken

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Season chicken breast with garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano.
