Insanely delicious Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls. Greek Marinated Chicken, cucumber salad, tzatziki, red onion, and tomato, served over brown rice. These are quick and easy to make, and will help you be set for the week.
Don’t you just love the flavors of Greek foods? I love the lemon, the dill, the red onion, and more. Basically if it has the word “Greek” attached to it, I want in. This year, in an attempt to eat better, and stay on top of meals so I don’t feel as much need to snack, or binge on junk, I have started making some meal prep bowls. Look how easy it is:
My husband works out of town a lot, and so I like to make food for him when I can so he doesn’t have to eat fast food all the time. So these meal prep bowls have really come in handy for that as well. As well as these Italian Chicken Meal Prep Bowls or these Salsa Verde Taco Meal Prep Bowls.
This recipe basically consists of three recipes in one. You have a marinade for the chicken. It is a super simple to make marinade, that offers great flavors in as little as 20 minutes. I loved how flavorful this chicken turned out. Then you have the cucumber salad. It is a pretty simple recipe that utilizes fresh cucumbers, lemon, and seasonings. I could eat a big bowl of this by itself. Last, there is the tzatziki, which is I think just brings the whole dish to life with the fresh flavors, and smooth creaminess.
The chicken is tender and juicy, the veggies fresh, and the flavors are awesome. I was worried the cucumbers wouldn’t stay crisp, but if you use the English cucumbers, they should be good for the 3-5 days.
The recipe makes six of these great meal prep bowls. I like to eat one the day I make it, and then use the rest for lunches for the husband and I for the next few days. It is so nice to have a lunch ready for me, and not have to try and come up with what I am going to eat.
My daughter, who is in elementary school, and loves Greek inspired food as well even asked if she could take one of the meal prep bowls to school for lunch. And the great thing is I could say yes because they taste great cold. I like to eat them chilled. But if you want, you can heat the chicken and rice portions up before eating, or cook this fresh, and eat day of, while the chicken is still hot. You could also split the salad and chicken and rice into separate containers if you want to reheat!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
