Greek Healthy Chicken Meal Prep Recipe


This Greek Healthy Chicken Meal Prep Recipe is a delicious healthy meal prep recipe which is perfect for weekday lunches. I love to make this on a Sunday and then I don’t have to worry about what to prepare for lunch for the next few days.

Start by preparing tzatziki. Coat chicken with a herb mixture and bake in the oven until cooked through but be careful not to overcook. Combine cauliflower rice with cucumber, tomatoes, mint, and parsley to make the tabbouleh. Assemble the lunchboxes by slicing and dividing among 4 boxes. Divide tabbouleh and tzatziki equally among the containers and add hummus or baba ganoush. Top each container with about 5 kalamata olives.

Steps to make Greek Healthy Chicken Meal Prep Recipe


Heat oven


Preheat the oven to 400 °F.


Make tzatziki


Place grated cucumber on a paper towel and gather edges together. Gently squeeze to remove excess liquid before placing it on top of a sieve or colander to allow the cucumber to continue to drain. Once fully drained, combine with 1 cup of yogurt,
2 finely minced garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, ½ a teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of minced fresh dill.


Season chicken


Combine 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, ½ a teaspoon each of dried thyme, dried basil, dried minced onion and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush both sides of chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle generously with herb mixture.


Bake chicken


Bake the chicken in the oven for about 20-22 minutes or until a thermometer inserted reads 160 ºF. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.


Make tabbouleh


In a large bowl, combine 1 bag of cauliflower rice, ½ a cucumber diced, 1 cup of diced tomatoes, 1½ cups of chopped flat-leaf parsley, ¼ cup of mint leaves, 2 sliced scallions, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, ¼ teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon of salt, plus more to taste.


Slice chicken


Slice the cooled chicken breasts into about ½-inch slices against the grain.


Assemble lunch boxes


Divide chicken slices equally between 4 lunch boxes. Divide tabbouleh and tzatziki equally among the lunchboxes. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of hummus or baba ganoush into each container, and top each one with about 5 kalamata olives.



Garnish with crumbled feta, chopped fresh parsley, a light drizzle of olive oil and/or freshly cracked black pepper.
