How to make Greek Chicken Bowls – Best Tips and Tricks

Healthy Greek Chicken Bowls - Best Meal Prep Idea-6

1. Get some bowls or containers suitable for meal prep.

First and most important you need to have some airtight bowls, or containers.

I normally use glass bowls and you can find some very good ones on Amazon, but plastic containers will do the job just as good.

2. Marinate the chicken before cooking.

Marinating the chicken will make it more tender and juicy. And it will stay like that even when you store it in the fridge for a few days.

You probably know that chicken breast can turn dry when you store it in the fridge.

By marinating it, you can be sure that it will taste great even after three days.



And here is an easy greek chicken marinade that you can make in no-time:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or if possible, overnight.

3. You can also make it with thighs.

You can make this easy greek chicken recipe with thighs instead of breast.

These are naturally more tender and you won’t need to marinate them (although the marinade adds tons of flavor).

Since they have a slightly higher fat content, they won’t dry up when you store them in the fridge for a few days.

4. Try it with quinoa or brown rice

I made these easy greek chicken bowls with salad, so it’s a light, low-carb meal. This is perfect if you like this kind of food or if you are trying to lose weight.

But it may be a bit too light for some of you foodies, hence, you can replace the salad with quinoa or brown rice.

This will make it more nourishing and yet still healthy.

5. If you really want it Greek, make it with Tzatziki.

Here’s an easy recipe for it:

  • 1 cucumber, seeded, finely grated and drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients until well combined. Chill and add it to the Greek Chicken Bowls before serving.
