About this Greek Bowls Recipe
This is the kind of meal that tastes like takeout, but is easy enough to make at home with all your favorite feel-good ingredients!
Since lots of the components can be prepped ahead of time, these Greek chicken bowls are perfect for meal prep lunches and dinners.
I love how light & refreshing these bowls are with fresh ingredients like cucumbers, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and red onion.
And don’t even get me started on the flavors happening here – the tasty Greek yogurt marinated chicken combines with all those chopped veggies, plus some crumbled feta cheese and kalamata olives.
But what really sets it over the top is a generous drizzle of delicious, creamy, yogurt tahini dressing (it’s super easy to make & just ties everything together so beautifully!).
Process & Tips
This easy healthy bowl recipe is loaded with veggies and packed with protein, so you’ll definitely wanna keep this one in your backpocket for busy weeks.
A sharp chef’s knife makes quick work of the cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and bell peppers.
Then simply mix together your cooked chicken, cauliflower rice (or any cooked grain), and your chopped vegetables before drizzling over your delicious dressing – that’s seriously it!
I used this recipe for Greek yogurt marinated chicken breast, since the flavors pair so well together, but you could use any cooked chicken you like (think lemon marinated chicken, any grilled chicken, crockpot pulled chicken or even leftover rotisserie chicken).
And the yogurt tahini dressing couldn’t be simpler to whip up, you just shake everything up in a mason jar (bonus points that you can store leftover dressing in the same container that you make it in!).
I love serving these bowls as-is but I wouldn’t say “no” to a squeeze of fresh lemon juice & chopped flat leaf parsley on top, or some toasted pita bread on the side either!
Fun Greek Bowl Variations
Low carb: This recipe is naturally low carb when made as instructed using cauliflower rice.
With couscous: Swap 2 cups of cooked couscous for the cauliflower rice.
Vegetarian: Skip the chicken and add 1 can of drained and rinsed chickpeas.
You can also serve this bowl as a filling for a wrap! Simply stuff it into a large burrito-sized tortilla or pita pockets with some crunchy romaine lettuce.
How to Meal Prep Greek Chicken Bowls
Divide the chicken into four, compartment-style meal prep containers.
Place the cauliflower rice or grain into a separate compartment, then add the vegetables into a separate container.
Pack the dressing in a small, sealable container such as a mason jar.
When ready to serve, stir everything together and enjoy!
The components for these bowls will keep well for 3-4 days in the fridge, just be sure to use tightly sealed & lidded containers.
Ingredients & Modifications
Sliced cooked chicken: You can use any kind of cooked chicken you like, but this Greek Yogurt Chicken Breast recipe is perfect for this recipe!
Cauliflower rice: I love these bowls with cauliflower rice for an easy, low carb option but you can use any cooked grain you like. Couscous, quinoa and rice would all be delicious in this recipe.
Cucumber: I find that fresh English or Persian cucumbers work best for this recipe. They provide some refreshing crunch in these bowls.
Cherry tomatoes: I like the sweetness of the halved cherry tomatoes (and how easy they are to prep) but you could use any kind of fresh tomatoes you like.
Bell pepper: I usually use red or orange bell peppers for this recipe but you could use any color you like.
Red onion: A little bit of thinly sliced red onion pairs perfectly with the other flavors in this bowl. But if you don’t like or can’t have onion, feel free to skip it.
Kalamata olives: Naturally, kalamata olives go great with these other Greek-inspired flavors & ingredients. Be sure they’re pitted before adding to your bowl.
Feta cheese: The feta cheese, together with the olives, provides a nice salty & savory bite. For a dairy-free option, be sure to use a plant-based feta cheese or skip it altogether.
Yogurt tahini dressing: I used a homemade yogurt tahini dressing but you could also look for a creamy store-bought tahini dressing if you like.
