For the Chicken Marinade:

  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast, trimmed & cubed
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup avocado or olive oil

For the Pickled Onions:

  • 1/2 red onion sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Enough oil to submerge the onions

For the Lemon Dill Yogurt:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Other Bowl Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice
  • Greens (spinach, arugula, romaine, kale)
  • 1 pint baby tomatoes, cut into fourths
  • 1 large cucumber diced
  • 1 container Feta cheese


  • Combine all ingredients for the chicken marinade in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken to the bowl and stir to coat. Set aside in fridge for 20 minutes-2 hours.
  • Combine all ingredients for the pickled red onions in a small bowl. Stir to combine. Set aside for at least 20 minutes (but longer is better!). You can store the pickled onions on the counter for 3 days to use throughout the week.
  • Cook the rice (or grain of choice) according to package instructions.
  • Prep the other ingredients by chopping the tomatoes and cucumber. Set aside.
  • Stir together all ingredients for the Lemon Dill Yogurt, set aside in fridge for at least 20 minutes for the flavors to combine.
  • Heat a large cast-iron pan or non-stick skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add 2 tbsp of avocado oil and continue to heat for another minute.
  • Using tongs, add the marinated chicken to the pan, cooking & rotating with tongs until cooked through and has a crust, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Assemble the bowl by layering the greens, the grain, the cooked chicken, the veggies and pickled onions and top with the Lemon Dill Sauce and crumbled feta.
