Instructions

Greek Marinated Chicken

  • In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, parsley, yogurt, and salt and pepper to taste. Place chicken in a ziplock bag and pour marinade on top. Seal bag and turn several times to coat chicken. Place chicken in refrigerator and let marinate 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmery. Add chicken to skillet and saute several minutes until chicken is browned and no longer pink. Remove from heat and cool.

Cauliflower Rice Bowls

  • In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, tomatoes, shallot, olives, feta, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Arrange cauliflower rice in the bottom of meal prep containers OR serving bowls if serving right away. Top with cucumber mixture and chicken. Store in refrigerator up to 5 days. May be eaten cold or hot. Enjoy!

Notes

*To make your own cauliflower rice, cut a medium head of cauliflower into medium florets. Grind into rice-sized pieces in food processor then saute in a little olive oil  over medium-high heat about 10 minutes until tender.
