Chicken & Quinoa Buddha Bowls

Arrange the toppings individually on these protein-packed Buddha bowls so each bite has a contrasting taste and texture. Make big batches of the salad dressing, quinoa and roasted chicken thighs and you'll have healthy meal-prep lunches or dinners for days. Though the chicken thighs take just 15 minutes to prep, you can also make the salads with leftover chicken or store-bought cooked chicken to make prep even faster.

Ingredients
Roasted Chicken Thighs
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1¼ pounds), trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Quinoa
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups quinoa
Italian Dressing
  • ¾ cup red-wine vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1¾ cups extra-virgin olive oil
Toppings
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 6 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sprouts or shoots
  • ¼ cup toasted seeds or chopped nuts
Preparation
Prep - 15 m
Ready In - 15 m
  1. To prepare chicken: Preheat oven to 425°F. Place chicken on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon ground pepper and ¼ teaspoon salt. Roast the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165°F, 14 to 16 minutes. Slice 4 thighs. (Reserve 1 thigh for another use.) 
  2. Meanwhile, prepare quinoa: Combine broth, 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Stir in quinoa and return to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer until the quinoa has absorbed all the liquid and the grains have burst, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. (Reserve 2 cups for another use.) 
  3. To prepare dressing: Combine vinegar, water, sugar, mustard, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper in a blender. Puree until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add oil and puree until creamy. (Transfer 1¾ cups to a large mason jar and refrigerate for up to 1 week.) 
  4. To assemble bowls: Divide 3 cups quinoa among 4 large shallow bowls. Top with the chicken, chickpeas, avocado, radishes and sprouts (or shoots); sprinkle with seeds (or nuts). Drizzle with ¾ cup dressing.
  • To make ahead: Prepare chicken (Step 1) and quinoa (Step 2); refrigerate separately for up to 5 days. Prepare dressing (Step 3); refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review: Hands-on

Thanks to a plus model, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the big Samsung phone you've been waiting a long time for. Find out why in our hands-on review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone. This is largely due to tiny bezels and the punch-hole camera.
Based on some hands-on time, we love it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

Samsung had shaken thing up and you can now choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, but which is the best phone for you? We compare them to help you decide.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Or Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
While the Galaxy Note 10 models share many specs and design features it's pretty clear who each one will appeal to.
If you've been longing for a Note in a more manageable size, then the regular Note 10 is exactly what you've been waiting for. However, if you want the biggest screen possible along with some extra specs like more memory, storage, microSD card slot, extra sensors and a bigger battery then the Note 10+ is your best mate.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

For the first time ever, there's a plus model of Samsung's S Pen smartphone. Here's why you'll want the Galaxy Note 10+ if you like having extras.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device.
There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However, many of the new features are gimmicky and we imagine some users will be distraught at the removal of the headphone jack.
