This was such an easy meal to put together, and a big hit for the whole family.
This recipe utilizes feta cheese so be sure to check labels and look for sheep's cheese feta vs. cow's milk to keep this healthy and gut-friendly. (Cow's milk can lead to weight gain and other digestive issues) We got ours from the farmer's market and it is oh so delicious.
This recipe is great for a busy weeknight, especially if you already have shredded chicken on hand. If not, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil on 4 bone-in thighs and legs (we did the larger pieces with both together) season with sea salt and cracked pepper and bake at 300 degrees for an hour and a half. Allow to rest and cool and then shred. Prepping this beforehand makes mealtime a breeze.
