Low Carb Chicken Greek Bowls

Low carb, trim healthy mama s, Chicken Greek Bowls are what’s for dinner

I made these bowls when we had our crazy winter storm. There is a Greek restaurant near me that we love. Being trapped in my house had my kitchen creativity going. I started thinking about how to bring that yummy Greek flavor home with what we already had at home. The grocery stores, if they were open, were bare. The end results were delicious. My whole family loved the Greek bowls.

You can easily prep this dinner during your meal prep.

Everything came together easily but if your days and nights are busy, take a little time to meal prep. I find that taking an hour on a day where I am not running in every direction to meal prep, my week goes so much better. The only thing I don’t think I would completely pep would be the tzatziki sauce. I wouldn’t add the grated cucumber until it is time to make the Greek bowls. These would also be great to prep for the whole week. I have done taco salads that way and a few other meals. These bowls would be perfect for that.

You can grill, bake, or pan fry your chicken.

You can cook your chicken however you want or need to. If you are still frozen, grilling is most likely out of the question. I was able to grill mine. It was a little chilly but doable. I also used chicken tenders. You can use chicken breasts that you slice into strips if that is what you have. If you are going to use whole chicken breasts, you might want to butterfly them or pound until they are even in size. You don’t want to overcook the edges just to get the middle cooked to the right temperature. Whatever temperatures you are experiencing, put these on your menu. They are so good!
