It’s Sunday Funday & it’s all about hearty meals in a bowl today!
Soup and salad is my first thought. Then ramen bowls. Finally, I landed on rice bowls and decided to take a twist with a Greek Chicken Bowl.
I loved how the flavors all melded perfectly. I was a little nervous about adding the dollop hummus, but it is the thing that brought the whole dish together.
Check out these other meals in a bowl:
- Shredded Beef Taco Bowls from A Day in the Life on the Farm
- Greek Chicken Rice Bowls from Amy's Cooking Adventures
- Saffron Bulgur Bowl from Palatable Pastime
- Tofu and Sprouted Moong Buddha Bowl from Cook with Renu
- Shrimp Spring Roll Bowls from Food Lust People Love
- Cheesy Rice Bowl - Cafe McDonalds Style from Sneha’s Recipe
- Baked Falafel Bowl from Mayuri’s Jikoni
-I use homemade Greek Seasoning, feel free to substitute with a store bought mix, if you have it.
-I also use my own Hummus, store bought will also do.

Place the chicken in a container or zipper bag. Whisk the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Marinate 8 hours or overnight.

While the chicken cooks, prepare the rice.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the rice, minced onion, and minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Stir in the Greek seasoning, salt, pepper, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
