  • 1.5 lb. chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp Za'atar Seasoning (or other greek seasoning)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • Mediterranean Salsa
  • 1 English cucumber, diced

  • 1/2 cup store bought Tzatziki sauce

Directions:

  1. Prepare the chicken by cutting into 1-inch cubes. Place chicken into a resealable storage bag with the remaining ingredients. Toss to coat evenly. Let chicken marinade for at least 30 minutes.
  2. While the chicken is marinating make the Mediterranean salsa by dicing the cucumber, tomatoes and onion. Place into a medium bowl with the olives and toss with olive oil, vinegar and oregano. Gently fold in the feta cheese.
  3. Reheat the frozen cauliflower rice according to package instructions. Once heated through, place a paper towel on top of the cauliflower rice and press down to soak up the extra liquid. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Set aside
  4. After the chicken has marinated, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and the marinade into the pan and spread out into an even layer. Cook for approximately 4 minutes each side or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
  5. To assemble the bowls, divide the chicken and cauliflower rice evenly between four bowls. Top with the salsa and Tzatziki.
