When I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, I tried to commit to a healthier lifestyle that I just couldn’t stick to. Time, temptation, and lack of motivation always got in the way. Though there were several factors that came into play to finally make a healthy lifestyle sustainable for me, meal prep was a big part of it!

Making simple meals ahead of time

Why I Love This Recipe

It’s made in one pan!

Yup! You can make this all in one pan. Of course, you could split it up into more than one, but you don’t necessarily have to.

It’s packed with nutrient-dense ingredients

Healthy fats, tons of veggies, fresh herbs, and a satiating protein. What more could you ask for??

The Ingredients You’ll Need For this Greek Chicken Meal Prep

 

Chicken breast

You can also use chicken thigh in this dish.

Cauliflower rice

Use a food processor to rice your own, or use pre-riced cauliflower.

Zucchini, red onion and tomato

These are the veggies that make up the dish. I had my portion without the grape tomatoes, so you can easily sub those out for AIP.

Parsley

Olives

If you don’t like olives (apparently they’re a controversial food) you can leave them out, but if you love them like me, they go great with this dish!

Coconut yogurt, cucumber, and dill

This is what you’ll need for the homemade tzatziki. I recommend a coconut yogurt brand like coyo that has minimal ingredients.

Tips to make it easier

 

Use pre-riced cauliflower

Pre-priced cauliflower is so easy to find these days. You can find it at Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Target, and more. It’s my favorite convenience food!

The tzatziki is optional!

Can’t find a good quality yogurt in your area or don’t want to make your own? No problem. The tzatziki is optional and the dish still tastes great without it.

Store the tzatziki separately

You want to keep the tzatziki cold, so don’t store it with the rest of the dish that you’ll reheat.
