67: Lebanese Chicken from Middle Eastern Bakery & Deli
One of the benefits of being ruled by foreign powers for most of your past means your fare is the most diverse and most popular of all Middle Eastern cuisines. Welcome to the wonderful world of Lebanese food.
The folks at the Middle Eastern Bakery and Deli, the grocery and restaurant in East Phoenix, know this world. And they'll tell you when it comes to creating an array of colors, flavors, and textures, the Lebanese chicken plate is a must order.
Featuring a grilled chicken breast, rice, homemade tzatziki, and your choice of a Greek salad or tabouli, the Lebanese chicken plate arrives flush with food and bursting with color.
The tender, grilled chicken breast, marinated in a garlic and lemon herb dressing, is light and flavorful, complementing the simplicity of the rice, the brightness of the chunky tzatziki, and the crispy freshness of the Greek salad. A breezy dish perfect for lunch, especially accompanied by a large cup of sweet lemonade.
