You can cook the chicken and your grain of choice in advance. Store in a container in the fridge. You can also chop up all of the vegetables and make the tzatziki in advance. You can store all of the ingredients individually or portion them out into meal containers to grab and go for the week. Just don’t put the tzatziki sauce on the bowls until you are ready to eat. The ingredients will be good in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can prep on Sunday and eat all week!

Ingredients

For the chicken:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (2 large breasts)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Dash crushed red pepper flakes

For the bowls:

  • 2 cups cooked cauliflower rice regular rice, or quinoa
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes halved
  • 2 cups chopped cucumber
  • 1 cup kalamata olives pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 1 cup tzatziki sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Pita chips optional
  • Fresh dill and parsley for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. For the chicken: In a gallon size Ziploc bag, combine chicken breasts, olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Marinate for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour, turning the bag occasionally.
  2. When ready to cook the chicken, brush grill grates or a grill pan with olive oil and heat to medium high heat. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade.
  3. Place chicken breasts on grill and grill about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and registers 165 degrees in the center, using an instant read thermometer. Remove the chicken from the grill or grill pan and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice the chicken into think slices and set aside.
  4. To assemble the Greek bowls: divide the cauliflower rice or quinoa among 4 bowls. Top with sliced chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, red onion, tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice over the top. Tuck pita chips into the side of the bowl, if using. Garnish with dill and parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
