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!

  • 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.

  1. My hubs had the leftover for lunch. He stated that is by far one of my best meals. We’ve been married 30 years so that’s a lot of meals to compete with. Wait til he tries your Chicken marsala recipe….

    1. Hey Kim,
      Perfect!! I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you and thanks so much for making it! Have a great weekend:) xx

    The hubs and I truly enjoyed this meal. Lots of leftover for lunch and beyond. I made my own tzakiki sauce which was really good. Definitely making this again.

    With all the good reviews, then the way my turned out, I’m wondering, am I missing something? For me, the chicken seasoning and the tahini sauce did not go well with the other flavors. The only saving grace was the homemade tzaziki sauce I made from another cookbook. I should have known with tamari (Japanese) and paprika (Hungarian) on the ingredient list – they’re not true Greek ingredients! IMO, would be much better with a more authentic Greek chicken seasoning blend and minus a tahini sauce.

  4. I can’t wait to try this recipe this week! Would you mind sharing what brand your use for the pita bread? Or do you make them and can share recipe? Thanks!

    1. Hey Cassie,
      Happy Wednesday! Thanks so much for making this recipe and your comment, so glad to hear it turned out well for you! xx

    This recipe was a true winner. It was perfect. I did everything according to the directions except the ginger tahini. I just don’t love tahini. It is a “me” not “you” issue. However, I made sure to have plenty of tzatziki sauce. My daughter does not love Greek. I made her little tacos using the ingredients and naan and she also loved it. Another win. Thank you.

    1. Hey Jen,
      Thank you so much for giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! Have a great Thursday:)

    Delicious and easy. The Tzatziki was killer and I lived in Crete Greece – your recipe is spot on. My stepdaughter is a fanatic for bowls so she was super happy. Thank you! I make your recipes almost every time I cook. I am catching up rating all of the recipes of yours that I’ve made – they are all so good!

    Loved the flavor but do not cook the chicken as long as instructed. I did and it came out hard & burnt. Unfortunately, I was serving this to friends and had no other chicken to prep so that was embarrassing.

    1. Hi Tori,
      Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback, so sorry to hear that your chicken burned! Please let me know if there is anything that I can help with! xx

    Turned out delicious! I actually used chicken tenderloins and made them in my air fryer. (I do this for yogurt chicken I make for my kids and I love how quick, delicious and easy it is!) Another HBH recipe I’ll be making again for sure!

    Made this tonight and got rave reviews! All of the flavors melded together beautifully. The highlight was the tahini sauce – I’ll be putting it on everything going forward. Time consuming but 100% with it – this recipe is a keeper. Thank you!

    Made this last night and it was DELISH. Made my own tzatziki from the HBH recipe. The tzatziki and the chicken were the highlight of the meal. Wish I had taken a picture because it serves beautifully as well… I will definitely be making again so will take a picture next time. Thanks Tieghan!!!
