  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free

Ingredients

Units Scale

For the Greek Salsa

  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice half a lemon
  • 2 tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

For the tzatziki 

  • 1 cup coconut yogurt (I like the brand, Culina)
  • 3 tbsp cucumber, diced
  • 2 tsp fresh dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Juice of 1/4 lemon

For the chicken bowls

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste (omit pepper for AIP)
  • Rice or cauliflower rice to serve

Instructions

  1. Combine the ingredients for the Greek Salsa and toss well to combine. Set aside in the fridge to chill.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the tzatziki and set it aside in the fridge to chill.
  3. To make the chicken, heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and crumble until cooked through, seasoning with onion powder, oregano, dill, parsley, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Stir to fully incorporate the seasoning.
  4. Serve the chicken bowls by adding a few spoonfuls of rice or cauliflower rice, and the chicken between 4 bowls. Top with a few spoonfuls of the Greek salsa and a large spoonful of tzatziki. Serve fresh.

 

Notes

  • Add more veggies by swapping the rice for cauliflower rice. You can either do all cauliflower rice or half and half rice and cauliflower rice.
  • Swap the rice for cassava orzo. This is a grain-free option that still feels like pasta or rice!
  • For meal prep. If you’re meal prepping these Greek Chicken bowls, you’ll want to keep the rice and ground chicken separate from the vegetables and tzatziki. A divided container is perfect for that! This helps to keep everything fresh for when you’re ready to eat it within the next 2-3 days
