Greek Chicken Bowls
This is my version of a salad. Don’t give me leafy greens that are going to hurt my stomach and make me bloat. Get outta here. You’ve done nothing for me my entire life, leafy greens. I can get great nutrients in without you. And I will do it in the form of this bowl. Mediterranean dishes have become my addiction lately. I’m sure my husband is completely over it at this point, but that’s not my problem. If he wants something different, he can cook…so we continue to eat Mediterranean-style bowls. I strongly believe that all dishes should be topped with boat loads of herbs and some sort of sauce. So almost all my meals look like this one. If my protein isn’t swimming in a sauce, I want nothing to do with it. I’m a 31 year old woman and these are my demands.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I got a new website going on!! So exciting! We are still working out 74329820119 kinks, so if you see something weird, let me know. My poor web developer and his team have had their work cut out for them. When you have had a website for 9 years and have over 2000 blog posts with multiple images in each post…yeah, things get a little messy on the back end. They tried to transfer everything over and it didn’t work, so they have been manually updating every single post along the way. Talk about annoying. But if you see anything wrong, tell me because it’s hard to see it all. I need you and your laser eyes.
One of my favorite parts of the site that is a little hard to find (which they are working on) is the Search By Ingredient tab. When you click on Recipes in the top left corner of my site, it will take you to a page that lists out all the ingredients I’ve used in my recipes. There are still some kinks on that page, just FYI, but we are on it! Now you’ll be able to search the exact ingredient you have on hand and find all the recipes that include that ingredient. So if you need to use up some bananas, simply click Banana and it will list out all my recipes with bananas in them! This is one of my favorite parts of the new website!
This new site really kicks off a new chapter of PaleOMG! This website started as a recipe-only blog then transitioned into fitness, fashion, decor, podcasts, therapy chats, stories of struggles, and so much more. And now my new goal with PaleOMG is to help you change your life for the better in even more ways! I just released my first ever 3-month Power Program & Meal Guide to help people get fit at home (or in the gym) and challenge themselves in new ways! And I want to continue on this path, taking in the information that you guys give me and feedback that you share, then create different programs to help you eat better, change up your fitness routine, and challenge you to become a better version of yourself. I already have more program ideas running through my head, but if you ever think about something you struggle with, I want to hear from you! Whether that’s getting a workout in in a short amount of time or getting a healthy meal on the table in under 30 minutes or even figuring out how to love yourself more than yesterday – I want to help and share my own experience and knowledge with you guys!! Can’t wait to see what the future of PaleOMG holds. And I have YOU to thank for helping me navigate this fun journey over the past 9 years. You guys are the absolute best!

That recipe search engine by ingredient is a dream! I’m usually trying to create a recipe or meal plan around what I have on hand. Just wanted to let you know though that beef broth ingredient doesn’t take you anywhere, just back to the ingredient list. I have about 2 cups of leftover broth that I wanted to use up so I’ve already planned to make your pot roast but was trying to see all of my choices. Banana does work and I’m making your coffee cake banana bread, which is always a hit. Loving the new website and looking forward to the power program. Is the recipe guide a thoughtful list of recipes from your blog or new ones? I’ve been working my way through your recipes for a while and I know there’s so many left to go! Just curious to the meal plan aspect of the power plan. Thanks Juli!
Well done Juli! The site is awesome and I love the new logo you have! Keep up the fantastic work!
Having trouble pinning this delicious looking recipe, getting this message on Pinterest: You need to upload an image or provide the ‘image_url’ parameter
it should be fixed now!
Fantastic! Made this for lunch today. Girlfriend loves it when I find ANOTHER recipe to try on us. I agree with lettuce, over rated. You’ve got me hooked on these bowls! Have never heard of Tzaziki dressing but now it’s going to be a regular. Thank you again for knocking it out of the park!
awesome!! so glad to hear it, roger!
Hi! LOVE all your recipes and print them out pretty much every week. : ) I’m seeing though with the new website the recipes are printing on 3 sheets of paper instead of 1-2. I know that sounds nitpicky, but the fewer sheets I have a recipe on the better. Just a little input, not sure if that’s a fixable thing or not. Thanks for always sharing your great recipes and funny anecdotes. Enjoy reading your blog every week!
so weird!! reaching out to my web developer now!
Seriously so good!! My husband who usually hates veggies even loved it!
Amazing! This recipe was a hit with the family last night:) Thank you for all your content!
awesome!! glad to hear it Jen!
I made this today; SO good!!
I was so excited about making this Juli since I love Greek food but cannot eat diary! It was the bomb and I couldn’t stop smiling after my husband said, “This is really good, this is a keeper” for the 5th time! Thank you for helping me eat the food I love again.
amazing!! so glad you guys are loving the recipe Jill!
THANK YOU for creating a bowl that does not contain leafy greens! Long story short I am on warfarin now (forever) and I am having the worst time trying to find recipes that remind me of my old style of eating to one with minimal leafy greens (too much vitamin K). I have missed my salads, but I think this Greek Chicken Bowl will more than make up for that!
i pretty much hate leafy greens unless they are cooked so most of my bowls are just filled with other types of veggies instead!
Yay! This will work out great for my house – we usually don’t use a grocery list or plan meals, we just buy some meats & veggies and put our meals together as we decide. We also eat differently (I lean toward paleo, he eats whatever). And, we made a rule that we have to use all the food in the house before we buy more. This will be super handy!
I just started your Power Program last week and it is sooooooooo good! I’ve done a lot of yoga and dance and cycling over the years, but not much with weights. My husband tried to help me but I don’t want to look like him lol. The workouts are fun, short and HARD! And between the beginner and the advanced I figure I have a year’s worth of exercising to do (I’ll re-do the beginner with heavier weights when I’m done with the first 3 months). Thank you so much for creating it!!!
woooohooooo so glad you’re loving the program Kristin!!
This is by far the best thing I ever had in my life! Period! Holy crap!!! Thank you so much!!!! So nice to have Greek food without all the salt and crap that can often go into Greek food at restaurants. (Even though we can’t really go to restaurants right now, thanks Covid) Anyway, this is out-freaking-standing! Thank you!!!! For lunch the next day, we made a wrap out of the chicken, peppers, onions, cucumbers and tzaziki sauce on a Siete wrap – TO. DIE. FOR!!! Thank you!!!!
yayyyyyyyy!! that makes me so happy Kelly!
Just curious, what type of pickles are you using? My 4yo and I love pickles and even started making our own during covid lockdown.
i LOVE grillos pickles. i never buy any other kind after trying that brand!
I’ve made this several times and came back for the recipe once again. I love making extra and having food for several meals!
awesome! so glad you hear it!!
