Whip up a fresh and healthy lunch in just 15 minutes with this simple recipe for Greek chicken bowls. You only need four ingredients that are easy to find in your local grocery store: cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, chicken breast, and feta cheese. We even made sure this recipe was as quick and easy as possible by using pre-cooked chicken. No cooking required for this feast!
This dish is great for a fast and hearty lunch or dinner, and it packs up perfectly for meal prep! It’s high in protein (it has a whopping 32 grams!) so it will keep you full and satisfied. Better yet, the fresh vegetables won’t weigh you down, so you can keep on going with your day and power through with full energy.
This is different from most Greek chicken recipes that require herbs, oils, marinating, and grilling…which is great if you have the time! But if we’re being realistic, sometimes we just want all the flavor without the effort. It can be hard enough to eat healthy as it is, much less make the healthy food taste good, too! Luckily, these Greek chicken bowls do just the trick. The fresh veggies give you an extra healthy boost that will make this dish even more satisfying, and the creamy feta cheese adds in a delightful layer of decadence.
If you do want to make this meal slightly fancier, all it takes is one extra step. After you combine the tomatoes and cucumbers into the bowl, lightly drizzle them with some balsamic vinegar and add a dash of dried oregano. This will really take your Greek chicken bowl to the next level, making you feel like you’re having a world-class lunch…even if you’re eating it at your desk. Your coworkers will be shocked to learn that this only takes 15 minutes to put together and a small handful of ingredients!
