greek bowls | designlovefest

ivan has a very specific memory of going to the mall with his family growing up and eating greek bowls in the food court. it’s a memory he loves and an experience that introduced him to greek food, something he still loves today. he really wanted to re-create it for the blog and i’m so glad we did. i love that we used chicken thighs instead of breasts as the meat turned out really moist. the bowl is packed with veggies and really full of flavor, it’s a real crowd pleaser! enjoy! – joanie

• in a medium bowl mix together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, and salt. add the chicken to the marinade and let sit for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. in a frying pan cook the chicken thighs on low to medium for about 6 minutes on each side; until chicken is no longer pink inside and has a nice browned outside. remove from heat, squeeze the lemon on top. cover with foil and set aside. chop before serving!
