I'm so excited because our garden is producing the best tomatoes and cucumbers! The kids, Troy and I cannot get enough. They are the juiciest, sweetest, reddest tomatoes and the cucumbers are super crispy and refreshing. I have been thinking of different ways to use this delicious produce aside from our favorite tomatoes, cucumbers, vinegar and black pepper and came up with these Greek chicken meal prep bowls!

Life is about to get busy with back-to-school coming up. Troy will be going back to work after 2 1/2 months off and Adalyn will be going to 4-year old preschool which is three days a week. I work from home of course and will be taking care of Oliver all the time and Adalyn while she isn't in school. These Greek chicken meal prep bowls are so perfect for a delicious lunch and when I first make everything, we also eat it for dinner before dividing it up into bowls.

Throw the name Greek on anything and you have my attention. I have so many Greek-inspired recipes on this blog and have many more that I want to make. There is something about feta, hummus, tzatziki, riced broccoli, tomatoes, cucumbers and more that I just love! The chicken is marinated in a lemon herb dressing and is super flavorful.

I like eating these meal prep bowls cold but if you want them hot, you can keep the tomato, cucumber and tzatziki separate from the rest of the food, heat and toss on afterwards. Some additional toppings that would be awesome would be peppers, sauteed zucchini, hummus or chickpeas. For a grain, I used quinoa but feel free to use any whole-grain such as brown rice or wheatberries. These meal prep bowls are super tasty and include so many great flavors that go along well together.


The star of this meal along with the tzatziki sauce is the Green Giant Riced Veggies Broccoli. I picked these up at my local Walmart and they are great! I am so excited to try the other versions: beets, kohlrabi, butternut squash and cauliflower. I love finding different ways to eat veggies and this is so fun. I feel like there are tons of different recipes to try out with these! My kids like everything so they definitely enjoyed these.

Riced veggies are super easy to make. You store them in the freezer and they are ready to eat in 6 minutes. No food prep or cleanup necessary like with fresh veggies. They have no sauces or seasonings so you can make them how you want. They have 85% less calories than white rice making them a lower-calorie alternative and they're gluten-free.
