I’m always trying to create healthy quick meals. Life can get crazy especially during the week so having a healthy meal you can partially prep ahead of time and put together quick is a good healthy alternative to take out!
This bowl can be adjusted to any specific flavors or food lifestyles. A Must try!
Greek Chicken Bowls
1lb chicken breast or tenderloins
1 cup fat free greek yoguart
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/2 tablespoon dried dill
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 tablespoon, red or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups tomatoes, diced
4 mini cucumbers, diced or cut in half moons
1 red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced (or garlic paste)
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons red or white wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon oregano
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1 cup tzatziki sauce
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 pitas, cut in triangles (I used a low carb high fiber option)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons garlic powder
sprinkle salt and pepper
Directions: In a medium bowl add the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, spices, vinegar and olive oil. Mix well till fully incorporated. Add the chicken to a large gallon zip lock bag (or a bowl) and add in the Greek yogurt mixture. Mix all together until the chicken is fully coated. Marinate 3 hours or overnight.
To make the salad add all the salad ingredients to a medium bowl with the seasonings. Add more or less to your liking. Start with less vinegar and add more if needed. Make the salad ahead of time and let chill for 1-2 hours. This will help marry the flavors.
To make the pita chips drizzle with oil on both sides and sprinkle with seasoning. Place in heated air fryer at 400° for 8-10 minutes flipping halfway through. Make sure they start to get crisp, set aside. Note: they will crisp more once out of the air fryer.
The chicken can be cooked on the stove, baked, grilled or made in the air fryer. I used chicken tenderloins and cooked at 375° for about 10 minutes flipping halfway through in my oven air fryer. Chicken must be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°.
To assemble the Greek Chicken Bowl add you’re cooked rice (or a low carb alternative) top with chicken and add the salad on the side. Top with tzatziki and feta cheese.
Chef Notes: If you prefer chicken thighs you can easily swap out the chicken. If you have a Greek seasoning omit the above spices and use that. YUM! I have made this with low carb alternatives like cauliflower rice and low carb pita. Add extra cooked veggies for more volume.
