For nights when you're starving and need a hearty meal, try this delicious combo.

For the chicken: Squeeze juice from one lemon on the bottom of a lightly oiled baking dish, then pat dry the raw chicken in the dish. Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper onto the chicken, cover the chicken in a thin layer of feta cheese and squirt the juice from another whole lemon over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes.

Make a healthy potato salad by using fingerling potatoes, softened after boiling for roughly 15 to 20 minutes. Substitute half an avocado (or a full one for a bigger batch) for mayonnaise and stir in the juice of one lime, a teaspoon salt, chopped red onion and cucumber to taste. Garnish with roughly chopped scallions.
