I do not like cooking on a busy day. But I am also trying to order takeout less because that leads to me eating something unhealthy. I have found easy meals to make to stay on track with my health goals but also making something I like. This was an idea I came up with trying to use the items I had left in my fridge. You can also add some tzatziki sauce to this recipe to give it more of a Mediterranean feel.
