Mediterranean Chicken Bowl

Mediterranean Chicken Bowl

Indulge in the vibrant flavors of the Mediterranean with this Greek Inspired Mediterranean Chicken Bowl. Tender, marinated chicken pairs perfectly with a zesty homemade hummus and a refreshing Greek salad, all served on top of rice to complete the dish.

Substitution

  • Vegetarian Mediterranean Bowl: Skip the chicken and focus on the rice, hummus, and Greek salad. Add grilled vegetables like zucchini, eggplant, and bell peppers for a hearty vegetarian option.
  • Mediterranean Shrimp Bowl: Replace the chicken with grilled or sautéed shrimp seasoned with Mediterranean spices for a seafood twist.
  • Quinoa Instead of Rice: Swap out the long-grain rice for cooked quinoa for a protein-packed and gluten-free alternative.
  • Different Greens: Experiment with different types of greens like spinach, arugula, or mixed greens for the salad base.
  • Additional Toppings: Enhance your Mediterranean bowl with toppings like toasted pine nuts, pomegranate seeds, or chopped fresh mint for extra freshness.
