These Greek Chicken Bowls are made with air fried chicken, zucchini, and bell peppers with Greek dressing and seasoning, fresh veggies, and tzatziki sauce!
We’re definitely obsessed with adding Greek flavors to just about anything, and lately we’ve really been enjoying these Greek chicken bowls! It’s got all of our favorite additions, like seasoned Greek chicken, fresh and healthy veggies, a zesty Greek vinaigrette dressing, crumbled feta cheese, and of course my very own homemade tzatziki sauce!
Did I mention all those veggies? Zucchini, bell pepper, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives… like I said, these Greek chicken bowls have it all!
I’ve also bulked these bowls up with white rice but you could easily swap that with some quinoa or cauliflower rice. These bowls are easy to customize with all your favorite ingredients.

Chicken – I’m using chopped boneless skinless chicken breast for these Greek chicken bowls. You could also use boneless chicken thighs or even chicken tenders here if you prefer.
Veggies – These Greek chicken bowls are loaded up with lots of good stuff including zucchini, bell pepper (any color!), halved cherry tomatoes, chopped mini cucumbers, thin strips of red onion, and kalamata olives.
Rice – The base of our Greek bowls is cooked white rice, but you can use any grain that you like. Quinoa and farro are both tasty in these bowls. Cauliflower rice makes a great low carb option.
Greek Dressing – Try your own homemade Greek dressing or keep it simple and pick up a bottle of Greek vinaigrette from the store. We really like the Newman’s Own brand!
Greek Seasoning – We use and love Cavender’s Greek Seasoning. It’s one of our favorite spice blends and we use it often on chicken, pork chops, and more. It is a bit salty so we don’t add salt to this recipe. You may need to depending on how salty the Greek seasoning that you use is.
Feta Cheese – We love the flavor that crumbled feta cheese adds to pretty much any Greek recipe and this one is no exception! It’s a great topping for the chicken bowls.
Tzatziki – What Greek recipe would be complete without tzatziki sauce? Even better would be to use my homemade tzatziki sauce! It’s a little more work but it’s so good.
Make it Low Carb!
Swap the cooked white rice for cooked cauliflower rice!
How to Make Greek Chicken Bowls:
- Prepare – The majority of the work involved in this recipe is just cutting and slicing ingredients. Start by chopping the chicken into bite-sized pieces, and the zucchini into rounds. Dice up the bell pepper too and all those ingredients to a large bowl. Pour on the Greek vinaigrette and top with the Greek seasoning and pepper. Stir well to coat the ingredients.
- Air Fry – Spritz your air fryer basket with some oil and then add the chicken and veggies to it. It’ll take about 10 to 12 minutes to air fry the Greek chicken and veggies. The chicken needs to reach 165 degrees to be safe. Shake the basket at least once halfway through cooking to mix it all up a bit.
We use and love this ThermoPro meat thermometer anytime we’re making chicken, steak, or pork chops! It’s the easiest way to ensure meat is cooked to the perfect temperature every time and is a great gift for beginner cooks too!
- Finish – After air frying you can start to arrange the Greek chicken bowls. You’ll need some already cooked white rice to divide evenly between each bowl, which you can then top with the air fried chicken and vegetable mixture. Finally, top the bowls with the halved tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, kalamata olives, and crumbled feta. Drizzle with the tzatziki!
Customize these Greek chicken bowls any way you like! There are lots of other veggies you could use or some you could leave out. You could swap the rice for quinoa or leave it out altogether. It’s up to you!
The zucchini and bell pepper will cook perfectly right alongside the chicken. If you’d like to add other veggies, just be sure that they’ll need a similar amount of time in the air fryer so they don’t over or under cook.
If you’re wondering what to serve with Greek chicken bowls you’ve got a few good options. My favorite choice is some warm pita bread. I’ve got a few other good suggestions too:
- Fresh Fruit
- Greek Salad
- Garden Salad
Shop our Favorite Air Fryers!
We’ve tested loads of air fryers over the years and narrowed it down to the best of the best! Whether you’re looking for a basket style air fryer that fits nicely on your countertop or you want the toaster oven style air fryer, we’ve got the recommendation for you!
We prefer to store the cooked chicken and veggies separately from the rice and toppings, to make reheating a bit easier. Just portion it all out when you’re ready to reheat and add the rice, chicken, and veggies to a microwave safe bowl. Heat until warmed through and then add your favorite toppings.
As written, this recipe calls for white rice, which is not considered low carb. However, you can easily substitute the white rice for cauliflower rice and you’ll have a delicious, healthy low carb meal.
