Chicken Shawarma and Quinoa Bowls

This is a fun, healthier spin on a classic Middle Eastern dish. Chicken shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern street food that typically consists of thin cuts of seasoned chicken cooked slowly on a skewer and served in a warm pita. I take all of those delicious flavors to make this nutrient-dense and flavorful bowl. Chicken is a popular dinner protein option when it comes to lean protein, as it packs a considerable amount into a single serving without a lot of fat. I use chicken breast marinated in an assertive marinade full of traditional spices like turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, cumin and smoked paprika. Then the chicken is grilled to perfection, keeping it tender and juicy. The chicken is paired with quinoa, a nutrient-rich ancient grain and tons of veggies. Finally, its topped with a bright, creamy balsamic-tahini dressing. This bowl is bursting with big, bold flavors and tastes amazing!
