Greek Chicken Bowl Ingredients

Chicken Breast: the main protein source in these bowls is boneless, skinless chicken breast that is perfectly cooked and seasoned. I like to split the chicken breast in half or use chicken cutlets to save even more time and help the chicken cook a bit faster and more evenly. 

Dried Herbs & Spices: speaking of seasoning, this recipe uses a combination of dried herbs and spices to season the chicken. You’ll need dried oregano, dried dill

Quinoa: the base of each bowl is hearty, whole grain quinoa! If you’ve been wanting to incorporate more quinoa into your diet, these bowls are such a great place to start!

Fresh Veggie Toppings: these bowls are easy to customize but I love to start with plenty of fresh veggies like romaine lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and more!

Tzatziki: my favorite way to serve these bowls is with a delicious cool and creamy tzatziki sauce. All you need are a few ingredients to make this easy sauce.

Ingredient Swaps and FAQs

  • Chicken Breast – you can easily swap the chicken breast for chicken thighs or even salmon if you like!
  • Quinoa – don’t love quinoa? swap it for brown rice or white rice instead.
  • Toppings – feel free to get creative with your toppings! add in hummus, extra veggies, fresh lemon, and more!
  • Tzatziki – if you need to keep the tzatziki dairy free, you can swap the greek yogurt for your favorite vegan alternative instead.

My Favorite Way to Make Quinoa

Quinoa is a versatile grain and a great one to meal prep and keep on hand in the fridge. You can easily add it to salads, bowls, or use it as the base of different recipes. Be sure to read this post for all of my favorite ways to use quinoa! 

Here’s my favorite way to make it: Add quinoa, salt, olive oil, and water to a medium pot. Bring the quinoa to a boil, cover the pot with a lid, and reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer the quinoa for 15 minutes and then remove from the heat. Let the quinoa sit, off the heat, for 10 minutes and then uncover. Fluff with a fork and serve!
