Greek Chicken Souvlaki Bowls with Roasted Veggies and Tzatzi

4 servings



total time



1/4 cup lemon juice

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons minced garlic (or grated)

1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1 teaspoon salt AND 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 - 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders


6 cups mixed veggies (I used diced eggplants, zucchini, baby bella mushrooms, and sweet peppers) (see notes) - red onion would be good add

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 ½ teaspoon montreal steak seasoning (or more)


1 cup greek yogurt

1 teaspoon garlic, grated

1/2 english cucumber, grated

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (or lemon juice)

1/2 teaspoon salt AND 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

cooked rice or quinoa, flatbread, chopped tomatoes, kalamata olives, and pretty much anything else you wish to add


CHICKEN:Combine all the ingredients except the chicken in a bowl. Place the chicken in a zip-top bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag and massage to evenly distribute. Allow the chicken to marinate for 20 minutes and up to 14 hours. Keep in mind, the longer you marinate, the more flavorful the chicken will be. When ready to cook, heat an indoor or outdoor grill, you can skewer the chicken if cooking on an outdoor grill to make it a little easier. Cook the chicken for about 1-2 minutes per side, about 4-5 minutes total or until the chicken is cooked through.

VEGGIES: Preheat the oven to 425ºF. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the veggies with the olive oil then sprinkle with the seasoning. Spread the veggies so they are in an even layer. Roast for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through.

TZATZIKI SAUCE: Combine the yogurt, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl with a whisk. Add the grated cucumber and stir with a spoon until mixed.

ASSEMBLE: Place rice or quinoa in a bowl, top with cooked chicken, roasted veggies, chopped tomatoes, kalamata olives, and drizzle the tzatziki on top. If meal prepping, keep the sauce and fresh veggies separate so it's easy to reheat the bowl.
