Easy Greek-Inspired Rotisserie Chicken Bowls

Here is another super fun, absolutely delicious way to repurpose and use your store-bought rotisserie chicken or leftover rotisserie chicken– an Easy Greek-Inspired Rotisserie Chicken Bowls!

Easy Greek-Inspired Rotisserie Chicken Bowls

Bowls are always a simple way to pack a lot of flavor into a meal and very quickly either with fresh veggies, pantry staples — or both — and your favorite protein. In this case, these Easy Greek-Inspired Rotisserie Chicken Bowls were inspired by a Greek Shawarma. In the recipe, I have spiced up shredded rotisserie chicken with some delicious, warm spices that really add some excitement to the rotisserie chicken. I then add it to a bowl that is filled with a brown-rice base with some fresh veggies like lettuce, tomato, onion, then kalamata olives for brine-y, salty bite. The best part? It is all topped off with an easy, oh-so-flavorful Tzatziki sauce and feta cheese — yum!

This simple recipe is one that I know you will all love and whip up for many dinners to come. Enjoy!

    Made this for dinner last night and it was a huge hit. The tzatziki is delightful. I will definitely make this again for a quick weeknight meal.

    There is a restaurant in Canada that has a Greek bowl with rice that I absolutely love. You’ve managed to take that and completely elevate it! The freshness of the tzatziki , the perfect amount of spice on the chicken! Quick and easy, and most importantly farmer in the field and kid approved!

    YUM!! I fridge foraged with what I had tonight because I HAD to have it! No chicken so I used ground turkey with the same seasonings. No fresh dill so I used dried. I’m already excited to eat this again for my lunch tomorrow 😁 Thank you, Alex! Your recipes are amazing.
