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.
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.
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?
