One Bowl Chicken Souvlaki/recipe

One Bowl Chicken Souvlaki

4 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 large cucumbers, chopped
2 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons capers
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1 teaspoon oregano
Fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped parsley
Pita bread (you could also use naan bread)
Combine chicken, cucumbers, scallions, capers and tomatoes in bowl.
Mix up feta and yogurt — you can do this by hand if you like chunkier dressing or in a food processor if you like it smooth. Mix in the oregano.
Pour dressing over chicken mixture and stir just to coat. Sprinkle with pepper and parsley and serve with pita bread.



Easy Shrimp Gazpacho/Recipe

Easy Shrimp Gazpacho

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
2 large tomatoes (heirlooms if you can get ’em), chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/2 sweet onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup parsley, plus extra for garnish
1/2 cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and add shrimp and Old Bay. Simmer until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Drain and cool the shrimp in ice water.
Put tomatoes, cucumber, onion, parsley, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a blender and puree until smooth.
At this point you can pop it in the fridge to cool it down, or you can serve it at room temperature. When you are ready to serve it up, divide the soup among bowls, garnish with the shrimp and some chopped parsley, drizzle with a little olive oil and serve!
I like to get smaller shrimp and put them into the soup whole, but if you prefer larger shrimp you can cut them into bite-sized pieces before adding to the soup for easier eating!


Mediterranean Sheet Pan Chicken/Recipe

Mediterranean Sheet Pan Chicken

Take your chicken dinner to exotic places with this easy recipe for Mediterranean sheet pan chicken, full of herbs and spices and a little feta cheese!

1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
4 bone-in chicken breasts
1 lemon, cut in wedges
3 cups baby potatoes, cut in half or quarters depending on size
One sweet onion, sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
2 tablespoons capers
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Preheat your oven to 400 and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil (nonstick if you’ve got it).
Combine cumin, oregano, salt, thyme, pepper and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the olive oil and stir until well combined.
Drizzle a little more olive oil on the baking sheet and put the chicken breast on the sheet, spacing them out. Rub them all generously with the spice paste, keeping a couple of spoonfuls of the paste back.
Stir the potatoes with the remaining spice paste and arrange them on the pan around the chicken. Add the sweet onion slices and the lemon wedges.
Roast your sheet pan chicken in the oven for about 30 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through (if you are using an oven thermometer to measure done-ness, which I love to do, the chicken should be 165 degrees)
Sprinkle the tomatoes, capers, feta cheese and parsley over the chicken and veggies, drizzle on a little more olive oil and serve!
You can serve this one right out of the pan – just put it on a hot mat in the center of the table and let your lucky diners serve themselves!
