These loaded Chicken Tzatziki Bowls offer a fun weeknight dinner that feels extra special. Street food-inspired oven-roasted chicken served bowl style with all the “extras”. Lettuce, lots of peperoncini, a simple avocado cucumber salad, and plenty of feta. Add delicious creamy tzatziki sauce and ginger tahini and you’ll have a Greek-inspired bowl that’s SO GOOD. Serve each bowl with pita and homemade fries for a meal that everyone will truly love.

Hi, hi from Atlanta! One quick signing here at Williams Sonoma at Ponce City Market. Then I’m off to Texas for the final two book tour stops on Monday and Tuesday, then home on Wednesday. I’m looking forward to the next couple of days, but I’m also excited to be sharing a new recipe. I’ve been wanting to share this bowl since the day I made it!! It’s so fun, delicious, and a great recipe for spring/summer.

With springtime here (NYC and Atlanta have so much color right now!), I’m definitely craving fresh foods with bright colors. Spring salads, veggie boards, and fun vegetable sides for upcoming Easter.

My one hang-up with salads is that they never quite feel that satisfying. Lots of greens, but rarely many exciting elements to build them up and make a great meal! Instead of another okay salad, I made a Greek-inspired bowl with ALL the accompaniments.

Here are the details

This recipe definitely looks long, and while there are some steps to it, nothing is too hard or time-consuming.

The chicken is where you want to start. It’s seasoned with yogurt, lots of garlic, shallots, smoked paprika, and oregano. Super flavorful. If you have extra time you can begin marinating the chicken a few hours before cooking or you can start cooking right away. 

Once you got your seasoned chicken roast it on a sheet pan to keep things simple and quick. 

While the chicken is roasting I like to make a quick homemade tzatziki sauce. But store-bought easily works as well! 

Then the ginger tahini. It’s tahini, ginger, a bit of garlic, lemon, and salt. So simple but it’s that drizzle of tzatziki sauce that really adds to the bowl.

Assemble 

When the chicken is complete all that’s left is to assemble. This is basically like a big salad, but a loaded salad. 

Lots of shredded lettuce, then cucumber, avocado, crumbled feta, and plenty of fresh dill. The rest is up to you, tomatoes and peperoncini are key for me!! 

Throw the chicken on top, then add dollops of tzatziki sauce, and a drizzle of the tahini!! So many yummy flavors and textures.

I usually serve the bowl with warm naan (or pitas) and a side of fries.

Such a fun and bright dinner for any night of the week. And what I love is that the leftovers are perfect for enjoying the next day for lunch! The sauce will last all week and can be used in multiple recipes. 

Creighton wasn’t in Colorado when I made this. But when I sent him the photo, he was bummed he wasn’t around. Definitely his kind of dinner!

Ginger Tahini

Instructions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, olive oil, cubed chicken, garlic, shallots, paprika, oregano, chili flakes, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Let marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator.

    3. Meanwhile, combine the cucumbers, avocado, lemon, dill, salt, and pepper.
    4. To make the tahini. Combine all ingredients and 1/4 cup water in a blender and blend until smooth. If needed, add water to thin the sauce as desired. Season to taste with salt.
    5. To assemble, add lettuce to a bowl. Top with chicken, cucumber/avocado, feta cheese, and any other desired toppings. Add a few dollops of Tzaziki sauce. Drizzle over the tahini.

    I made this today and all five of us loved it. A great quality result from a thoughtful recipe.

    1. Hey Rebecca,
      Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try and sharing your feedback! I love to hear that it was a hit! xTieghan

  2. Tieghan, when I watch the TikTok video for this recipe, it appears as though you begin making the ginger tahini by pouring olive oil into the bowl. But, I do not see olive oil as a part of the recipe nor the instructions for the ginger tahini. Is olive oil actually a part of the ginger tahini? Can you explain?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Johnn,
      If you want/need to thin your tahini out a bit you can add some olive oil like I did, but it isn’t necessary:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    I made this tonight, and it was really good. I missed the 1/4 cup of water in the ginger tahini at first-did not read “combine all the ingredients and 1/4 cup of water” my daughter pointed that out when I was commenting that the ginger tahini was not even close to pourable. The water IS one of the ingredients and should be listed as such. Thanks for an awesome recipe Tieghan!

    This was a great combination of flavors and textures and made for quite a hearty salad. I would use a bit more salt and lemon on the chicken marinade next time, and I added slightly more tamari to the tahini to bump up the umami. My husband and I really enjoyed it! I have been regularly using your recipes for a couple years now and they are always colorful and delicious!

    I never comment on recipes but this was simply OUSTANDING. I used store bought tzatki and I also used store bought lemon tahini sauce (but doctored it up by grating fresh ginger which was a game changer).

    Simply amazing. Will be making this again and again and again!
