  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa or rice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Fresh parsley leaves for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving

For the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber, grated and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Begin by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and ensure they are well coated. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare your tzatziki sauce. In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, grated and drained cucumber, minced garlic, fresh dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cover and place in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend.
  3. Preheat your grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the marinated chicken breasts for 5-7 minutes per side, or until fully cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).
  4. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes, then slice it into thin strips.
  5. Assemble your gyro bowls. Divide the cooked quinoa or rice between two bowls. Top with sliced chicken, cherry tomatoes, diced cucumber, red onion, olives, and feta cheese.
  6. Drizzle with the tzatziki sauce, garnish with fresh parsley, and serve with a wedge of lemon on the side.
