  • To taste, add salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  • 1 1/2 cups non-fat, 2%, or full Greek yogurt

Chicken Gyro Bowls Other Ingredients

  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup cucumbers, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • Kalamata olives, 1/3 cup
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 cups of brown rice, cooked


Chicken Gyro Bowls

  1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the chicken marinade and stir until well combined. The cubed chicken should be added and left to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. The tzatziki sauce is made while the chicken is marinating. Mix all of the components together and taste for seasoning. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a large skillet over medium heat. Spread the chicken out in a single layer after adding it. Before turning it over, let it brown for three to four minutes. Cook for an additional four to five minutes, or until cooked through.
  4. Fill each bowl with rice before adding some of the chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives, crumbled feta, and tzatziki sauce to it.
