Greek Chicken Meal Prep Rice Bowls

Posted on

These Meal Prep Greek Rice Bowls are similar to my Greek Chickpea Salad but served warm with chicken and rice instead of chickpeas. It’s an easy dish to meal prep for lunch or dinner. To pack it for lunch, keep the cold ingredients separate, so the chicken and rice are easy to reheat at your desk. You can see more Meal Prep Recipes here.

These Greek power bowls are packed with nutrients. You get protein from the chicken, whole grains from the brown rice, and plenty of vitamins and minerals from the tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. The lemon, feta, and Kalamata olives add so much flavor to these Mediterranean bowls.

To make these healthy Greek chicken bowls, you first need to prep your chicken. Working with one chicken breast at a time, put the chicken in a plastic bag and pound it thin. This step will help all your chicken cook evenly. After, mix all the marinade ingredients together, pour in a Ziploc bag with the chicken, and marinate for 30 minutes, up to overnight.

Bring the flavors of the Mediterranean to work with these Greek Chicken Meal Prep Rice Bowls – the perfect recipe to make ahead!
