Greek food sometimes is not the healthiest choice. But this bowl... oh my... it's simple, delicious, and it will actually give you mind and body energy!
  • For chicken:
  • 8 boneless, skinless, organic chicken thighs
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups coconut yogurt (plus extra for serving)
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or use as much as you like) Note: please use fresh minced garlic if you have it -- I didn't have any on hand, so I used the powder.
  • 2 Tbs dried minced onion flakes
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 med red onion, thinly sliced
  • For bowls:
  • greens of choice
  • tomatoes
  • coconut yogurt (I love Anita's)
  • optional veggies: bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, green beans, broccoli
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place it in a bowl or dish with the coconut yogurt, oil, oregano, almond milk, garlic, minced dried onion, and vinegar. Smoosh it around until the marinade is covering all of the chicken. Refrigerate as long as you can (I put mine in the fridge for about 4 hours).
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F convection setting, or 425°F regular bake setting.
  3. Cover a rimmed baking tray with parchment paper.
  4. Spread the chicken onto the tray in a single layer. Keep the marinade on the chicken.
  5. Lay the red onion slices on top of the chicken.
  6. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.
  7. Arrange the chicken in bowls with greens, tomatoes, extra yogurt, and any veggies you like.
  8. Enjoy!
