Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

Dressing

  • 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. 

Chicken

  • 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.
