By popular demand, here is the Greek Bowl recipe I used. You could make so many variations! Do not skip the homemade tzatziki. You may be tempted to do a store bought version, but it was worth it to make my own. It was really easy.

You need:

Rice- I did instant brown rice but you could do rice, couscous, cauliflower rice, or no rice. You could also do orzo.

Chicken- You can use rotisserie or leftover. I did a crockpot of chicken tenders with chicken broth. I added a bit of Greek seasoning after it was cooked.

Cucumbers – dice some and grate some into paper towels and then squeeze out as much water as possible. Save the grated for the sauce. I peeled the cucumber for the diced but I left skin and seeds on for grating and it turned out perfectly!

Tomatoes – diced. I did grape tomatoes

Red onions – diced. Roasted would also be delish!

Olives (I don’t like them)

Feta cheese – I did the lower fat version.

Tzatziki Sauce:

Greek non fat plain yogurt – I used one individual container.

dill – I just used the dried spice

Lemon juice- 1 tsp.

EVOO- 1 tsp.

Salt, pepper, garlic powder- just a few dashes

Mix these ingredients together until smooth. Now add the drained, grated cucumber to the mix. You can let sit for a bit or refrigerate until ready.

I heated the rice and chicken just a little bit and added the remaining ingredients to a bowl with those.

Do you think you will try this? Any other ideas for variations?

  1. Looks yummy! How do you do the chicken tenders in the crock pot, how long? Do you use them in a few days or freeze some? I’m stalled on my weight loss and need some inspiration!

    1. I did low with chicken broth for maybe 3 hours? I like to use my crockpot on weekends so things don’t get over cooked. I check on them often. I put salt, pepper, garlic powder and then added Greek seasoning blend I had on hand at the end. I added at the end because I used some of the chicken for something else so I divided it up.

  2. Mmm, that looks so good! Just as in Greece – but they would probably serve fries with it :-D. Yes, homemade tzatziki is the best, but I’m lazy, and the store has a pretty decent one, so… It’s really good with all kinds of meat! But I would add a favorite: feta cheese! I love it on all salads. It’s lower in calories than other cheeses, but contains a lot of salt (probably why I love it).
