MARINATED GREEK CHICKEN
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
5 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
zest and juice of 1 lemon
3 garlic cloves, minced or grated
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
2 small (or 1 large) English cucumbers, diced
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons dried oregano (or 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh oregano)
zest and juice of ½ lemon
1 large cucumber, grated and drained well
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
3 cloves garlic, minced or grated
zest and juice of ½ lemon
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh mint (optional)
kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
1½ pounds cherry tomatoes, halved
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 red onion, sliced
Prepare the marinated chicken: place all of the marinated chicken ingredients into a large plastic bag and make sure the chicken is fully coated. Marinate it for at least 20 minutes (or up to overnight), then drain and discard the marinade.
While the chicken is marinating, prepare the other components. Make the cucumber salad: toss the diced cucumbers in a bowl with the rest of the cucumber salad ingredients, then set it aside. In another bowl, prepare the tzatziki sauce: in a small bowl, mix all of the tzatziki sauce ingredients. Slice the red onions thinly and set them aside. Cut the cherry tomatoes.
Cook the marinated chicken breasts for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan, and let it cool. Once it’s cool, cut it into bite-sized pieces. Refrigerate the chicken while assembling your bowls.
Assemble the Greek chicken bowls: add ½ cup of cooked brown rice to each airtight container, and top it with the cooked chicken, tzatziki sauce, sliced red onion, cucumber salad, and cherry tomatoes.
