This greek chicken bowl dinner could not be easier!
All you need to do is pour one bottle of Greek dressing into a crockpot with 2 lbs of chicken and cook on low for 8 hours. Then shred! From there you can get as creative as you want — top your chicken with your favorite toppings. We love tomatoes, feta cheese, cucumber (quickly marinated in olive oil, red wine vinegar and squeeze of lemon juice), hummus and tzatziki sauce!
The best part about this recipe is that you can make it in a large batch and use the leftovers for lunches! I like to add a base layer of lettuce in my to-go containers and use the leftover cucumber marinade for our salad dressing.
Update 2022: Our favorite dressing is the Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette Salad Dressings & Marinade!
For a vegan (dairy-free) option, Trader Joe’s carries vegan falafel that we serve in place of chicken for Matt and they also carry delicious vegan tzatziki!

Made this last week and it was delicious! The leftover chicken was perfect to use on salads for lunch. I also made a Mediterranean chicken wrap one day too. Thanks for sharing!

I made this tonight and it turned out excellent! Added some quinoa to the bowls since we had that already in the fridge, and used Girard’s Greek Feta dressing instead as that is what I found at the store 👍🏻 Love your easy and delicious dinner ideas!
do you make your own tzatziki sauce?
I buy it from the store to keep it easy!

Man I looked all over our entire grocery store and they didn’t have the sauce. Had to get like a tzatziki ranch dressing. Sigh…🤦♀️ is it that much of a specialty sauce?????

Hey- I found your baked spaghetti freezer recipe on Pinterest and pinned it and then wanted this Greek bowl that you linked in that post and the recipe is covered by your ads 😞 Can you please fix that so your recipe can be viewed? It does not print anything either.
