How will I know if I’ll ever get tired of Greek food if I don’t even try? Pretty sure I could eat this quick and easy Greek chicken bowl meal prep every day.
Here is what you’ll need: 2 large chicken breasts, 1 plain Greek yogurt cup (5.3oz), 1 pouch seedsofchange red and brown rice with kale and chia, 1 long English cucumber, 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, 1 small jar of kalamata olives, 2 lemons, 1/4 large red onion, 1/2 medium white onion, 2 cloves minced garlic, dried dill, salt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, pepper, and garlic powder.
Start by butterflying and marinating the chicken! In a gallon bag, put the chicken, the juice of 1 1/2 lemons, 1/2 of the yogurt container, 2 cloves minced garlic, a good shake of dried dill, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt and pepper. Shake it up and let it sit for up to 8 hours.
Next, chop up the cucumber and red onion to a size you like. Divide them into 4 portions and place into sandwich baggies. Add desired amount of cherry tomatoes and olives. Drizzle each bag with olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt and pepper. Seal and shake up. Keeping the veggies in the bag makes it easy to pull the bag out of the meal prep container for microwaving, then dump the veggies on top to make the chicken bowl. It also collects all the juices, which create almost a dressing that adds flavor to the bowl.
Tear the corner and microwave the rice pouch for 90 seconds. Finely chop the white onion. Sauté the onions in a large pan in kerrygoldusa butter or olive oil until soft. Dump the pouch into the pan and season with salt, pepper, and dill to taste.
With the other 1/2 of the yogurt, add remaining lemon juice, garlic powder, dill, and salt to taste. This makes a quick tzatziki-ish sauce that is the perfect topping for your chicken bowl.
Cook the chicken however you like! I, of course, grilled it outside. Cube it.
Last but not least, assemble your bowls! I divided the chicken, rice, and yogurt sauce into four portions: 1 for dinner and 3 for later! If you are doing dairy-free, omit the yogurt and just add more olive oil to the marinade. For grain free, leave out the rice. (I prefer small portions to leaving it out completely!)
