HEALTHY AND COLORFUL GREEK CHICKEN GYRO BOWL

MEAL PREP TIPS:

I love these flavors and the ease of having this dish in your meal prep routine because you can chop the veggies, prep the Tzatsiki sauce,  and marinate the chicken during meal prep and then cook the chicken at meal time for a 10-minute quick meal.

You can also skip the Tzatsiki and just have the hummus and feta or even just the feta to simplify the dish, save on calories as well as money on groceries.

  1. Mix the marinade together in a bowl + pour over the sliced chicken. Let if marinate overnight or for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
