Greek Chicken Bowl

I think what I hear most often from people is that they are busy and don’t have time to do a lot of cooking. I get it! I feel the same way. Honestly most of my kitchen creations do not come from a love of cooking. They come from necessity. My family and I are working to get healthy and clean and someone has to do the cooking and the cleaning up (bleh). Me and me.

That is why I am a big proponent of trying to make clean eating cooking and the clean up after as minimal as possible. I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen! That is why I love having a super simple meal prep day where I basically prepare some meat and vegetables for the week. BUT, I also like to make leftover re-dos. What does that mean? It just means I am trying to make a plain chicken breast into a meal that is something completely different than just plain chicken and baked veggies every single time (also bleh).

I have accidentally come up with a group of 5 minute meals that I think are the answer to this problem. They have been great! I feel like we have been busy all summer and it has been great to have a meal that I basically throw together from items I have already in my kitchen. The key is that I want it to be a variety of flavors so that I actually want to eat them. And for any of you out there like me following the 21 Day Fix or trying to stay Paleo, this is perfect! It is super easy to measure your portions out in your containers. (What are these containers?)

This particular mix up came to be while I was making my new favorite salad. It is just a toned down and simple version of that. It’s easy to make and you cook nothing (because the chicken was already cooked on meal prep day!).

Greek Chicken Bowl

Ingredients:

1.) Chicken Breast (I use a leftover chicken breast cooked like this), chopped

2.) Cucumbers: cut

3.) Tomatoes: cut

4.) Blue or Feta cheese (or avocado…however the cheese does add a flavor I really like!)

5.) Greek Style Olives (I love mezzetta brand), I slice these also so that I have more bites of them in my meal ūüėÄ

Dressing Ingredients: 

-this makes more than one serving, I drizzle a little on and save the rest in the fridge for my salads.  Just whisk all of the ingredients together

1.) 6 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2.) 3 tbsp Balsamic Vinigar

3.) 1 tsp Yellow Mustard

4.) Juice of 1 Lemon (I usually use the MinuteMaid lemon juice from the freezer section at the grocery)

Directions:

Just mix all of your ingredients together and drizzle some dressing on the top.

This is a great 21 Day Fix meal.  I love it when it is easy and obvious how to measure my containers out.  That is all you have to do here.  Fill up your color coordinating containers with your foods and then mix them together.  If you are looking to use a yellow container along with this, you could use a 1/2 pita and make it even more portable.

21 Day Fix: Red, Green, Blue, Orange
