GREEK CHICKEN & LENTILS

September 16, 2019

I love Greek flavors! I like my Greek essentials – lemon, feta, peppers, onions, and some crisp cucumbers. It makes such a good dinner for the rotation. Some people find lentils intimidating, but they are easy to make. A good dose of lemon and some cucumbers are important to keep them feeling light and zesty.

This dish is perfect for meal prep! Make this serving size and you have enough for lunches for the week, plus a bit extra too.

And cooking this meal goes super fast!
