Cajun Chicken with Garlic Mushroom Rice and Greek Salad

Tomatoes and cucumbers were on sale at Mitchell's so that calls for Greek Salad. It was chicken's turn and I seasoned it with Cajun spice, brushed it with olive oil and BBQ'd it. Before cooking the rice I added a stick of celery diced, diced glove of garlic and several sliced crimini mushrooms that had completely dried out in a paper bag in the fridge. Salt and olive oil. A little lemon would have been good but  I forgot. Anyway, when the microwave was done with the rice I stirred in some chopped parsley and a few drops Tabasco Sauce.

Greek Salad

2 tomatoes diced
3 inches English cucumber diced (the skin isn't bitter so you don't peel them)
1 thin slice red onion diced
feta cheese
black olives
parsley chopped
black pepper
olive/canola oil
lemon juice

The rice was really good with the chicken. Usually Fern likes white rice but it seems if I do a good job on a pilaf he likes it. The rescued mushrooms were the best surprise. They brought flavour and were tasty if a little rubbery.
