easy dinner ideas

We have made these shawarma bowls a few times now, and they are so delicious and colorful that I wanted to share the details here!

I had seen Trader Joe’s marinated shawarma chicken thighs a few times but didn’t necessarily know what I would do with them. Then I realized they could be baked, shredded and used for rice bowl. SO EASY.


Trader Joe’s marinated shawarma chicken thighs (baked according to directions and shredded)

grape tomatoes

mini cucumbers

bell pepper

red onion (pickled onion would also be delicious)



tzaziki (optional)

lemon juice, olive oil

white rice or brown rice


Bake the chicken according to the package directions and then shred it.

Cook your rice – I use Trader Joe’s frozen bags of rice. We love them. Top the rice with your shredded chicken, chopped vegetables, and hummus. Top with a drizzle of good olive oil and a squeeze of some lemon juice.

So much flavor, so colorful and easy.
