Let’s get started!
4 boneless skinless chicken thighs½ tsp paprika1 tbsp olive oil1 cup cooked rice1 cup cooked quinoa1 cup black beans1 cup corn1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved1 cup roughly chopped cilantro1 avocado, sliced¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled1 avocado, sliced¼ cup plain Greek yogurtSalt and pepperPickled Red Onions
1 large red onion¾ cup vinegar¼ cup water1 tsp fine sea salt1 tbsp sugar3 medium tomatillos1 poblano pepper2 jalapenos3 cloves garlic½ white onion½ cup cilantro1 tsp salt1 lime, juiced
Start by seasoning the chicken with paprika, salt and pepper.
Let it rest in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
Now we’ll quick-pickle some red onions. This simple yet complex ingredient will elevate your bowl in ways you would not expect.
Peel, rinse and halve the tomatillos. On a lined baking sheet, roast the tomatillos, poblano pepper, jalapenos, onion and unpeeled garlic cloves in a 400 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes. You want everything to become soft and develop some color.
Cook the chicken on each side for 5-7 minutes or until it has browned to your liking and the interior has cooked thoroughly. Slice the chicken lengthwise into half inch pieces.
Top with corn, beans, avocado, tomatoes and chicken. Add a dollop of greek yogurt to the center.
Finish off by garnishing with pickled red onions, crumbled feta and a drizzle of salsa verde over the entire bowl.
