Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls are fresh, healthy, and loaded with Greek-inspired flavor! Gyro-inspired chicken pairs perfectly with tzatziki sauce and quinoa for filling prep for the week.How should these be stored and reheated?You have a few options! I like to assemble the bowls in glass airtight containers and eat them straight from the fridge. Sometimes I’ll remove the chicken to reheat in the microwave and then add back into the bowl – I don’t like to reheat the tzatziki and veggies. But you can also store the ingredients separately and reheat and assemble before eating. I love it both hot and cold!You can find more of my recipes on my website and follow along on instagram for behind the scenes!

Ingredients

Greek-Inspired Chicken

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs. 1-1.5 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil. Additional oil for cooking.
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Pinch of ground black pepper

Bowl Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 1 large cucumber, chopped
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup tzatziki sauce, store-bought or homemade

Instructions


Marinate Chicken. In medium bowl or gallon zip-top bag, combine chicken thighs with marinade ingredients. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
Cook the Quinoa. Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Set aside.
Cook the Chicken. While the quinoa is cooking, cook the chicken thighs. Heat a cast iron (or other heavy skillet) over medium-high heat with about 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook the thighs for 6-8 minutes per side until cooked through. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Assemble the Bowls. Assemble the bowls with a scoop of quinoa, some sliced chicken, the chopped veggies, and a spoonful of quinoa. If desired, you can store the ingredients individually.
