Greek Chicken Thighs With Artichokes & Feta

IMG_3069

 

I will keep this one quick, just like this took to make. This is legit the one picture of the whole meal because, well I wasn’t going to snap one of the nasty raw chicken in a ziplock, or just raw chicken in general. I have decided I hate raw chicken. My face right now is disgusted even just writing about it. Moving forward, may or may not (probs not) taking pics of raw chicken.

If you cannot succeed at this recipe, I ain’t got words, that’s all I got to say. Good luck to you & may you forever be happy with delivery to your door.

We wanted to eat a “healthy salad” for dinner. What does that mean? That means you throw a bunch of vegetables on a plate, add some protein, mad cheese & voila, “healthy salad”. But like legit what does that mean. What salad is NOT healthy? I mean if you put 2 pounds of cheese on it? If you drown it in ranch? I do all of those things, so I guess “healthy salad” means “not as much cheese” (for Larry) and not 1 cup of ranch.

This wasn’t meant to put over a bed of lettuce (why is it even called a bed?) but hence the healthy salad direction, I went for it. This could also be bomb.com on some quinoa, rice pilaf or with some roasted potatoes.Or if you are an odd bird and do not like sides, just eat it by it’s damn self.  Some people might not like the spinach wilting as broiled chicken gets flopped down on it. I didn’t not care because I SCARFED it down. But just heads up it WILL wilt your lettuce.

Thank you to Skinny Taste for hooking me up with this hell of a dish.
