Our first Meal Time Monday launched this morning on Fox56!! I thought Greek Chicken Bowls would be the perfect recipe to start the year off—healthy, flavorful, totally approachable. Let’s get back in the kitchen, eating well and feeling good. What should we make next week?

Course Main Course
Cuisine Mediterranean
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins
  • olive oil, for cooking and drizzling
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp Greek seasoning, I use Cavender’s
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 onion, thick sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 orange or yellow bell pepper, julienned
  • 2 cups cooked grains, i.e. brown rice, farro, quinoa

Tomato Cucumber Salad

  • 1 cup kalamata olives, diced
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 cups cucumber, diced
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, roughly chopped, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
 

  • Season the chicken by drizzling with about 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic, Greek seasoning, and lemon zest and juice. Allow marinating for about 20-30 minutes or up to overnight. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat and cook the chicken for about 3-4 minutes per side, until lightly browned and cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside. Add another drizzle of olive oil and saute the onion and peppers for 2-3 minutes. Vegetables should be caramelized, but still crisp. While vegetables are cooking, dice the chicken into cubes and add back to the pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • To make the Tomato Cucumber Salad, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • To build the Greek Chicken Bowls, spoon about 1/2 cup of cooked grain into a large bowl. Add a generous scoop of the chicken and vegetables, followed by a scoop of the Tomato Cucumber salad. Garnish with sliced olives and additional dill, if desired.
