These Grilled Greek Chicken Quinoa Bowls are perfectly fresh and hearty and loaded with all those classic Greek flavors we crave!  They are packed with fresh veggies and topped with a creamy, herby Greek yogurt based tzatziki sauce.

Guys. This is how you build a chicken bowl! These Greek Chicken Bowls would also be perfect for meal prep. Just be sure to wait to cut add the avocado until ready to serve and keep the tzatziki in a separate small container.

I really tried to keep the ingredients list down (you should see some of my other Greek recipes) so I've listed several of the toppings as optional. Really the key ingredients are the marinated and grilled chicken, the quinoa (which could be substituted with farro) and then I'd say at least one fresh veggie, and the tzatziki (which could be substituted with hummus).

Then to make the best use of your time you can cook the quinoa while the chicken marinates and prep the toppings while the chicken is cooking. I used to believe in a 2 hour marinating time for chicken but the last few years on busy weeknights it just never happens so for many acidic marinades like so I've found 30 minutes is actually plenty.

If you love Greek food this recipe is definitely for you. If you've never had Greek food then this recipe is definitely for you. If you are human then this recipe is for you :). Trust me it's delicious!
So good it you'll be wanting to make it on a regular basis. Greek and Mediterranean food has a way of doing that.
