Easy Meal Prep: Greek Chicken & Quinoa

Friday 5 January 2018

Chicken + Marinade
1.2 kg Chicken Breast 
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp Lemon Juice 
1 tbsp Oregano 
1 tbsp Garlic 
1 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 cup Greek Yogurt 
1 tbsp Lemon 
1 tbsp Garlic 
1 tsp Dill 
1 tsp Oregano

pint Cherry Tomato 
2 Peppers 
1 Cucumber 
Red onion 

Frozen spinach 


  1. In a large ziplock bag, add bite size pieces of chicken, greek yogurt, lemon juice, oregano, minced garlic and salt/pep/. Marinate for at least 30 mins, the longer the better! 
  2. Once chicken has marinated, add to parchment lined baking sheet and until near done. There may be some liquid on the pan so dump this off and then place under broiler to crisp chicken, be sure not to dry out the chicken. 
  3. Cook quinoa according to package directions, towards the end of the cook add in some spinach (fresh or frozen), finely diced onion, I also added some tomatoes I  had frozen last week. Finish with salt/pep. You can also just leave the quinoa plain. 
  4. Chop cucumbers, peppers and add cherry tomatoes (I leave the tomatoes whole) 
  5. Add greek yogurt, garlic, dill, oregano, lemon juice, finely diced cucumber and salt/pep to a small container, mix until combined. 
  6. I serve the salad separately so I can heat the chicken + quinoa
