Instructions

  • Place chicken in a gallon zip lock. Add olive oil, garlic, Greek yogurt, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, oregano and salt pepper to chicken and allow to marinade in refrigerator for 20min-12 hours.
  • While chicken is soaking in marinade prepare the salad and tzatziki sauce. For salad, add all ingredients to a bowl and toss together. Let cucumber salad set in the refrigerator.
  • For the tzatziki sauce, combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Let the sauce set in the refrigerator.
  • Add olive oil to a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Once oil begins to smoke, place chicken on hot skillet and cook for 4-5 min on each side or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees or higher is reached. Discard left-over marinade.
  • Once chicken is cooked and properly cooled, assemble meal prep containers, and enjoy your Greek Chicken bowls. I enjoy adding the tzatziki sauce to the chick and rice.??
