Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425˚F (220˚C).
  2. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, season chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano.

  5. Meanwhile, on a separate baking sheet lined with parchment paper, add shrimp and season with olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, and lime juice.

  7. Prepare chili lime vinaigrette dressing and split the dressing between two quart-sized mason jars.
