  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium zucchini, spiralized
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Season the chicken with oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until it’s no longer pink inside and slightly golden on the outside. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the spiralized zucchini (zoodles) and cook for about 2-3 minutes, just until slightly tender. Be careful not to overcook them as they will become mushy.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. In a large bowl, combine the cooked chicken, zoodles, spinach, cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, and half of the feta cheese. Add lemon zest and half of the lemon juice, tossing gently to mix.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining feta cheese on top.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the casserole is heated through and the cheese melts beautifully.
  7. Finish the casserole with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and a drizzle of the remaining lemon juice.
  8. Serve hot and enjoy a taste of Greece!


  • To prevent soggy zoodles, make sure to pat them dry with a paper towel before cooking.
  • You can personalize this casserole by adding other Greek-inspired ingredients such as artichoke hearts or red onion.
  • For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken with chickpeas or white beans.
