Confession. This is the first time I have made Greek Chicken Bowls. WHAT?! I know! Where have I been?? Under a rock apparently. Oh my goodness you guys, if you haven’t made these yet, you really have to. They are really easy to make, I mean really easy to make, and they are loaded with flavor. You can eat these Greek Chicken Bowls cold or you can warm up the rice and chicken. Either way, they’re delicious. Healthy too 🙂
One of the wonderful things about serving bowls for dinner (or lunch!) is that they are completely customizable. You and your kids can add extra of some ingredients or leave off something else, making everyone happy at meal time.
What I love about these Greek Chicken Bowls is that they are internationally-inspired, which gave us the opportunity as a family to talk about National Nutrition Month. You all know that we love creating healthy recipes, but sometimes we get in a meal-rut, so challenging ourselves with this year’s theme of Celebrating A World Of Flavors was actually a lot of fun. And my kids loved trying new flavors.
As I mentioned, these Greek bowls can be served warm or cold, so they are great for meal prep! I made a huge batch of rice on Sunday using our rice cooker and then I used that rice in this recipe, our Chicken Curry and the Sweet Kale Fried Rice. Having the rice ready to go made mealtime a lot easier!
What makes this recipe “Greek”?
