Ingredients

Scale

FOR THE CHICKEN:

2 chicken breasts

2 tsp salt

3 tsp pepper

2 cloves minced garlic

1 lemon, juiced

2 tbsp olive oil

FOR THE TZATZIKI INSPIRED DRESSING:

1 cup plain greek yogurt

1/4 cup olive oil

Juice of 4 lemons

4 cloves of minced garlic

2 tsp oregano

3 tsp salt

3 tsp pepper

FOR THE BOWLS:

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

2 heads of romain lettuce, chopped roughly

1 1/2 cups fully cooked quinoa

1 cup feta cheese

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

2 cups kalamata olives


Instructions

  1. In a large ziplock bag, combine all ingredients for the chicken marinade. Add chicken and marinate in fridge for 4+ hours.
  2. Roast chicken at 400 degrees for 25 minutes on each side or until fully cooked. Remove and chop into 2 inch cubes.
  3. In a bowl or mason jar, combine all ingredients for dressing and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  4. Assemble bowls using Pyrex containers (or whatever meal prep glassware you like) starting with a few spoonfuls of quinoa, then a handful of romaine lettuce, olives, tomatoes, chicken, feta, and cilantro. Do your best to divide the ingredients evenly between the 8 containers.
  5. Top with a spoonful of tzatziki dressing just before eating!

Notes

Marinate the chicken the night before if you can!
