Love an easy meal that goes for days? You may want to pause and take a moment to reflect on your life because I'm about to change it forever. These Mediterranean bowls are so tasty and so easy and customizable you get to decide how much effort you put in to making them.
These easy Mediterranean power bowls may become your next staple meal prep food, and I won’t blame you. I have done the exact same thing. It is just way too easy to keep a container of all the ingredients in the fridge and make a bowl with my own Mediterranean topping bar.
I was inspired to make these bowls from that restaurant Churritos. That is where I first had a greek bowl and I have been hooked ever since. That restaurant is no longer around where I live, so now I just make my own.
Greek food and the flavors are amazing because of how fresh and bright the ingredients are. With each bite you get bursts of flavor all with nutrient dense food.
Ingredients for Easy Mediterranean Power Bowls
To make these bowls you need:
- Chicken- I recommend this balsamic grilled chicken or use a rotisserie chicken
- Jasmine rice- I cooked my own but you can find frozen jasmine rice on the cheap that is ready in 3 minutes.
- Greek Salsa- This is your veggie topping!
- Greek dressing- homemade or store bought
- Feta cheese
Additional toppings and Substitutions
Don’t limit yourself to these flavors only. The skys the limit on what you can put in your bowl. Don’t be afraid to add things like kalmata olives, pepperoncinis, or a splash of lemon.
Don't like jasmine rice? You can totally substitute the grain for one that works better for your body. Brown rice or quinoa would be a great sub for the jasmine rice.
Looking for a low carb option? Try cauliflower rice or just make the bowl without the grain all together!
Customizable: Homemade or Store bought
The ingredients used in this bowl are completely customizable. You get to decide how much effort you put into making your bowl. Pick and chose which ingredients you buy and which you make at home. I will share how much you need of each ingredient and then you pick what you want to make. Easy peasy.

Step by step instructions
This recipe is all about making or gathering the individual ingredients and then adding them all to your bowl. There is no science to making a greek bowl! You get to decide how much you want of each ingredient. You are so good at being in charge!
Chicken: Decide on whether you are making your chicken or buying a pre made rotisserie chicken. You do you baby boo and decide what is easiest for you that day! If making this chicken give yourself 30 minutes for the chicken to marinate. This is what I used and it was delicious. I just let it marinate while I made the other ingredients.
If you decide to get a rotisserie chicken just shred the chicken and place it in a bowl and set aside.
Dressing: Make your 3 minute greek dressing, recipe here, or just set aside your store bought for when you add it to your greek salsa.
Rice: If you love a good heaping portion of rice in your bowls make 3 cups of cooked rice. If you want to portion it out and have a ½ cup of rice in each bowl then make 2 cups of cooked rice. I like to make my jasmine rice in the instant pot. You can do this by adding 1 cups of rice with 1 ½ cups of water to the instant pot. Use this same ratio if you want more (1 cup of uncooked rice for every 1.5 cups of water) Set it on manual for 2 minutes. When finished let it naturally release for 10 minutes. Voila done. Easy hands off rice. If you don't have an instant pot follow the directions for the rice you bought. Set your cooked rice aside.
Veggies: While your rice is cooking, it's time to do some chopping. This won't take but a few minutes and it is well worth your time. Follow the Greek salsa instructions here.
Gather your additional toppings: Gather your desired toppings. To make the bowls as pictured gather 8 tablespoons of feta cheese and ½ cup of your favorite store bought hummus.
Assemble your bowls: Place ½ cup of rice in each bowl. Top with 4-6 ounces of cooked chicken, ¼ cup of greek salsa, 2 tablespoons of feta cheese, 2 tablespoons of hummus. Add additional greek dressing on top of desired.
How to store
You can store all of the ingredients individually in refrigerator in air tight glass containers and assemble as desired. Or assemble your bowls ahead of time for meal prep. Assembled bowls will keep for 3 days in the fridge.Print
