Moroccan Chicken with Wild Rice for the Whole Family

This recipe is from Jillian Michaels' Making the Cut. I've made a few different recipes from this book over the years, and they have all been surprisingly delicious. Now I say "surprisingly" because this is a health and nutrition book.  I'm always expecting things to end up tasting healthy (meaning no flavor), but I'm always wrong (thank god!). I made this dish the other night and it was so yummy. It's a great way to spice up (literally and figuratively) your everyday grilled chicken. I served this with a side of steamed broccoli, but you can serve it with any veggie you like. This is a delicious and healthy meal you can serve to your whole family starting at 10+ months.

Here's what you need for 4 servings:
4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
olive oil cooking spray
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground cloves
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 box Near East Wild Rice

Spray chicken breasts with cooking spray. Combine oregano, allspice, cumin, cloves, and garlic in a large (gallon size) ziplock bag. Add chicken breasts to the bag and shake to completely coat chicken in herb mixture. Cook chicken on a preheated grill pan over medium heat for about 20 or so minutes (10 minutes on each side). Prepare rice according to package. Remember to cut your little one's portion up into bite size pieces. Your little one's portion will be between 1/2 and 3/4 cup. Serve and enjoy!
