Step 1Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Preparing the chicken: In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, chopped dill, chopped parsley, olive oil, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt, thyme, and ground coriander. Toss the thinly sliced chicken in the mixture and allow it to marinate for 15 minutes. Place the chicken on a sheet pan and roast for 20 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before cutting it into slices or chunks.

Step 2If using the tahini dressing (see notes): Mix together the lemon juice and tahini in a small bowl. Slowly mix in the water. The dressing will start out thick but thin out as you add the water. Whisk in the olive oil, dill, garlic powder (if you are using it) and a pinch of salt and pepper. Season to taste. If the dressing is too thick for your liking, add a little more lemon juice or water.

Step 3To assemble your bowls, arrange the chopped lettuce, tomato, peppers, and cucumbers in a bowl. Add a scoop of quinoa to each bowl and any other vegetables. Arrange the chopped chicken and feta in the bowls. Drizzle each of the bowls with the tahini dressing and enjoy!
