Ingredients

FOR THE ROASTED GREEK CHICKEN:

  • pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 large lemon juiced
  • kosher salt
  • 2 (rounded) tablespoons Greek Seasoning

FOR THE BOWLS:

  • 2 cups cooked couscous
  • 1 cup sliced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled, more or less to taste
  • 1/2 cup Greek olives
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 8 pepperoncini
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • chopped dill to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400°. Place the chicken onto a rimmed metal baking sheet and toss in the oil, lemon juice, greek seasoning and a pinch of kosher salt. Roast on the middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes or until fully cooked. Transfer cooked greek chicken to a cutting board to rest before slicing.
  • Meanwhile, cook the couscous following the package directions and divide among bowls (or jars!).
  • Top couscous with sliced Greek chicken thighs, slices of cucumber, feta, olives, tomatoes, pepperoncini, red onion and garnish with chopped fresh dill and top with either homemade tzatziki sauce or Greek dressing.
