I recently asked all of my Instagram followers if they’d be interested in me sharing more meal prep ideas and the answer was an overwhelming YES. So I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite recipes and I’m sharing them with you!

First up is this spin on Greek gyros and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do.

Rather than lamb or beef, I’ve used chicken for a lighter protein, and turned the whole thing into a bowl – one of my favorite ways to mix things up when I’m getting tired of old recipes! You can serve these without the pita bread too if you’re looking to make it low-carb or cut out some calories.

So what is in these chicken gyro bowls? A base of brown rice or quinoa, topped with juicy, marinated chicken, cucumber and tomato salad, crumbled feta cheese, and a quick cucumber tzatziki dressing.

I’ve been making this tzatziki dressing for years and it’s so simple and incredibly delicious. Don’t be intimidated by the name, it’s pretty much just throwing diced cucumbers, Greek yogurt, some fresh herbs, lemon juice, garlic, and salt and pepper into a food processor or blender and pulsing til smooth. Cover and chill for a while to let it thicken and you’re set!

You’ll want to put this dressing on everything!

  • 2-3 large, boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa or brown rice
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 pita breads

Cucumber Salad

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 peeled cucumber diced
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Tzatziki Dressing

  • 1/2 English cucumber peeled and diced
  • 2 cups cold, plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper



  • Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor (see note below recipe first!). Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate)

Cucumber Salad

  • Combine cucumber salad ingredients, stir, and set aside until ready to use. 


  • Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, dill, thyme, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Combine marinade and chicken in a large ziploc bag, seal and chill for 15-30 minutes. 
  • Cook chicken on the stove, or on the grill over medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes on each side until cooked through. Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice into strips. 

Meal Prep

  • Portion dressing, feta cheese, and cucumber salad into condiment cups. Fill three meal prep containers with brown rice (or quinoa), chicken, filled condiment cups, and pita bread. When ready to serve, remove condiment cups and heat chicken, rice, and pita bread before adding toppings.

Do you use dried herbs in the chi marinade?

    The recipe calls for fresh herbs but you could use dried herbs instead!

My favorite recipe on your site! All dishes that are associated with chicken are very healthy, and most importantly delicious! I think I can do MY MATH ONLINE and then start cooking. This is my hobby, in the future I would love to become a chef. I hope everything will work out.

I’m looking forward to trying your meal prep recipes! when ready to eat, do you just microwave to reheat? if so does the chicken in this dish stay tender and juicy? any tricks to keep it that way if so? Thanks so much!

    Hi Kelli! I reheat my meal prep recipes in the microwave.. I don’t feel like it dries the chicken out!

Could i sub shrimp for chicken? If so, should i still marinate with lemon or just herb/garlic/oul mixture? Thanks!

    Hi Aimee! I haven’t done that with this recipe before so I can’t say for sure… but if so, I think you’re good to marinate the shrimp, too. I’d love to hear the outcome if you give it a try!
