Ingredients

Tzatziki

  • 1 cup whole milk greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 tsp garlic powder divided
  • tsp salt divided
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. dill (minced fresh dill, dried dill weed, or dill paste all work fine)

Chicken

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 4- 4oz. portions
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Farro

  • 1 cup dried farro or other whole grain like quinoa or brown rice. If you are on a low-carb diet, then cauliflower rice or hemp hearts might work for you.

Seasoning

  • ¾ Tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp corn starch
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Greek Salad

  • 15-20 cherry tomatoes quartered
  • ¼ red onion diced
  • 15-20 pitted & halved black olives chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon juiced

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Tzatziki: Grate cucumber and transfer to a fine mesh strainer. Using several paper towels, squeeze all the extra water out of the cucumber. Combine shredded cucumber to a medium bowl with the greek yogurt. Add garlic powder, salt, extra virgin olive oil, white vinegar, and dill. Stir, and cover in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Seasoning: combine salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, corn starch, black pepper, onion powder, paprika, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.
  • Farro: Cook your farro or other whole grain according to package directions while baking your chicken.
  • Bake Chicken: Line baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking oil. Place 4 chicken breast portions on the baking sheet and coat evenly with the greek seasoning. Spray again with non-stick cooking spray and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Greek salad: dice the other half of the cucumber, quarter the cherry tomatoes, dice your red onion, and chop the olives. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Season the salad with salt, some freshly cracked black pepper, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and the juice of one lemon. Stir.
  • Portion everything evenly among 4 food containers, (or plates if you want to eat it now!)
