Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls
These Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls are a low carb make ahead lunch idea seasoned with a simple lemon-oregano marinade, and they're ready in just 30 minutes!
Let me just blow your mind with my latest meal prep idea.
It's so easy, it's almost hands off. You do a bit of prep, mix together a few simple ingredients you likely already have on hand at home and boom, your lunches are ready to go for the week.
These Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls are made on one pan, then you basically divide everything up between four meal prep bowls and you've only spent about 30 minutes in the kitchen. Isn't this way better than grabbing takeout for lunch at work?
I personally like to save my fancy cheat meals for the weekend hehe.
These Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls are a delicious way to keep lunches simple, and they're also great as a last minute dinner that's packed with protein and healthy veggies. And even though they are similar to these Chicken Souvlaki Meal Prep Bowls I promise you this recipe is a MUCH easier version with less steps and all the flavour!
I used bell peppers, zucchini and red onion to keep things simple but you can always sub in other veggies like broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, sweet potato and more – the options are endless.
I was actually going to add potatoes to the mix because my mom makes these killer lemon-oregano Greek-style ones that are sooooooooo delicious and part of the Greek chicken dinners she makes on the regular.
However, and fellow potato lovers please don't hate me, but I have been trying to eat lower carb and get more veggies in (it's a personal challenge, I'm experimenting with my macros and fitness and all of that).
If you are looking to do a potato version you could always try these Baked Greek Fries though – they are my FAVE and such a delicious weekend meal!
But while I'm trying my best to eat low carb and packing in the veg, I also started thinking about the logistics of this recipe and how the potatoes have cooked unevenly with other sheet pan recipes I've made.
For these Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls I decided to skip the potatoes because I knew I would have to cut them up super tiny to cook at the same speed as the chicken and vegetables, and then I would have to rinse them in water to remove as much starch as possible, and it just seemed like a whole process.
Honestly, veggies and potatoes don't do super well in sheet pan recipes from my experience. The veggies get overdone and soggy, and the potatoes remain hard and crisp. It's just not a good match.
Besides the *science* of sheet pan dinners, I do love them for the simplicity.
If you haven't tried one yet I'm telling you that they're a major time-saver, and you don't need a ton of ingredients or sauces to make them delicious.
I basically used ingredients from my pantry/fridge to make the Greek dressing for these Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls. Just a bit of olive oil, lemon juice, a TON of garlic, some oregano, salt and pepper. It's really a no-brainer and SO easy! You don't even need to mix it all up in a bowl and dirty another dish, you can literally measure and pour over all the ingredients and then toss everything together.
I'm telling you, dinner doesn't get any easier than this.
As for the feta cheese, if you would rather keep this recipe dairy-free that's totally possible, just leave it out! I make substitutions to recipes like this all the time – sometimes I'll throw in some hummus, other times some tzatziki or freshly chopped parsley. It really depends what you have on hand in the fridge but you don't really need more to up the flavour in these Sheet Pan Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls.
A little lemon juice and some spices from your pantry can go a long way and this recipe's a good example of that!
