If you’ve tried my low carb meal plans, you know I’m a huge fan of low carb meal prep bowls. They make lunch time so convenient when I’m in a hurry. And, this Greek chicken meal prep bowls recipe is one of my favorites. Everything is made in one pan, it’s quick and easy, uses common ingredients, and it’s both paleo & whole30 if you skip the optional feta topping.
What Are Meal Prep Bowls?
Meal prep bowls are basically just a recipe that is made once and portioned into containers or bowls for eating later. This saves a lot of time and stress, because you can just grab a low carb meal prep bowl for lunch without having to cook!
How To Make Low Carb Meal Prep Bowls
There are a million ways to make low carb meal prep bowls – pretty much anything that stores well can be made for meal prep!
For this particular Greek chicken meal prep bowls recipe, here are the basic steps:
Brine the chicken.
We do this the same way I always make baked chicken breast.
Chop the low carb veggies.
Choose ones that have similar roast times. I used zucchini, grape tomatoes and onions.
Also, make sure the veggies are similar in size so that they cook evenly. If some types of veggies are more “hard” than others and need a longer cook time, cut those into smaller pieces than others. For the zucchini, tomatoes and onions, all the same size works great.
Coat the chicken and veggies with oil, herbs and spices.
For Greek chicken meal prep bowls, we use Greek herbs like dill and parsley!
I used dried herbs because it’s what I had on hand, but feel free to use fresh. If you do, triple the amount – 1.5 tablespoons fresh herbs to replace each 1/2 tablespoon dried herbs.
Olive oil locks in moisture. You could also add a splash of balsamic vinegar for extra flavor if you want to – this is listed as an optional ingredient.
Bake the chicken and veggies.
We do this all one sheet pan – quick, easy and minimal cleanup! And best of all, it’s all done a the same time.
Portion out into meal prep containers.
Portioning in advance means your meal is ready to go when you are! Sprinkle some feta cheese in there if you aren’t dairy-free/paleo. Either way, you’ll just need to heat and eat.
How To Store Meal Prep Bowl Recipes
Glass containers work best for Greek chicken meal prep bowls. They don’t affect the flavor, store well, and you can reheat right in there.
These are my favorite meal prep containers right now. They are a great size, and they have a vented lid that seals in moisture when reheating in the microwave. Of course, you could also remove the lid and heat in the oven if you have time to do so.
Simply portion the meals into individual containers and store in the fridge.
How To Serve Greek Chicken Meal Prep Bowls
Serving Greek chicken meal prep bowls doesn’t get any easier! Just heat and eat. That’s the point of meal prep, right?
If you prefer a bowl or will be serving them right away, you can just use regular bowls instead of meal prep containers.
You really don’t need anything extra to serve with these, but if you want, you could add a low carb salad or low carb soup on the side.
Serving Tip: To refresh meal prep bowls when serving, drizzle with a little more olive oil and balsamic vinegar after heating.

These Greek chicken breast meal prep bowls are SO EASY! Only 20 minutes prep with many different chicken meal prep ideas.
Tap underlined ingredients to see where to get them. Please turn Safari reader mode OFF to view ingredients.
Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line an extra large sheet pan with foil and grease well.
Fill a large bowl with water. Add 2 tablespoons sea salt and stir to dissolve. Add the chicken and set aside to brine for 10 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the veggies - zucchini, grape tomatoes, and onions.
In a small bowl, stir together the dried dill, parsley, oregano, and garlic powder.
When the chicken is done brining, pat dry and place in one area of the baking sheet, close together but not touching.
Use 1 tablespoon olive oil to brush the chicken on both sides. Use 3/4 tsp sea salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper to season both sides of the chicken. Sprinkle both sides with the herb mixture, using up half of it.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the chopped vegetables and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add remaining 3/4 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and the rest of the herb mixture. Toss to mix well. Arrange the veggies in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they are not over the chicken.
If using the optional balsamic vinegar, drizzle it over the chicken and veggies. (You could also mix some of it into the veggies and drizzle the rest onto the chicken.)
Roast the chicken and veggies in the oven for about 20 minutes, until veggies are soft and chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven and let the pan rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the chicken and transfer to meal prep containers. Fill the rest with veggies. If you are not dairy-free, sprinkle with feta cheese.

Amazingly delicious recipe! Felt like I was eating food from a fancy greek restaurant!
Wow! This is fantastic! So simple yet so flavorful!
I have made this about 3 or 4 times and it’s one of my absolute favorites! It’s so easy and it’s SO good!!!
Hello so I have many veggies and different cheeses I could just substitute like mushrooms
Or Peppers and cheeder or mozzarella same for lunchables stuff right?

Hi Dee, Yes, those substitutes would work.
I love this recipe!!! So easy and SO good. I have made this multiple times and it will always be a go to for me!
This is such a great lunch meal! Lots of flavor!
Hello there! What temperature do you recommend roasting this at?
Thanks so much!

Hi Danielle, This recipe bakes at 400 degrees F. Check out the recipe card for full details and ingredients.
hello:) how long can these be stored in the fridge? and can I also freeze them? thanks in advance
Wholesome Yum M0
Hi Mila, These premade bowls will be best when stored in the fridge for 5 – 7 days. You can freeze this recipe, but the textures of the veggies will change a bit. Also, I would not add the feta on top to freeze. It would be best to add it fresh once you reheat your bowl. Enjoy!
Maya does not disappoint! I made these yesterday and had my first for lunch today. They are delicious and filling. I absolutely could tell the difference of including the brining. I loved this recipe and will be looking for more!
I appreciate all of your efforts to make keto easy to understand and tasty! Let’s make it even more healthy by stopping the use of aluminum foil. I have been educating people on the dangers of aluminum for over 40 years and have seen the ravaging effects of it clinically. Pkease become educated on the use of this heavy metal and make alternative choices.

Thank you for sharing, Jan! Feel free to use parchment paper instead of foil in this recipe.
Hi! I made this for my lunches this week. Does the calculated carbs include the feta or no, since it is optional? Thanks! It tastes great!

Hi Jesica, The nutrition includes the feta, it’s listed as an optional ingredient for Paleo or Whole 30 followers.
I never use the microwave. I’m wondering what your recommendation would be to keep these from drying out when rewarmed in the oven?

Hi Phyllis, you could just cover tightly with foil instead.
I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times (thank you!). I cut the chicken up and usually make a whole sheet of chicken first, then roast the veggies next since they take longer. I often do tri-colored bell peppers, asparagus, and whatever other veggies I have on hand (this is hands-down my favorite way to eat veggies!).
I haven’t really gotten the hang of the macros yet on keto. It always feels like there’s not enough fat compared to protein in this meal. I don’t like adding additional olive oil after cooking but I add extra feta because I love the flavors together. Any other ideas? (Not a big fan of avocado.)
Hi Suzanne, you might like adding my cauliflower hummus to your dish for some extra fat!
I just printed the cauliflower hummus recipe out and will give that a try soon. Thanks Maya!
So quick, easy and healthy…more like this please!
I absolutely LOVE this idea! I just saved it to my personal meal plan board. I don’t do low carb, so I may add some extra veggies and quinoa. Can’t wait to try it!
I am pretty new to meal prepping, but this looks like a great recipe to jump in with! Delicious!
I’ve never thought to do this. What a time saver!
This is a fabulous idea. The Greek Chicken sounds awesome.
These low carb greek chicken bowls are perfect for getting my eating back on track for the new year.
Love healthy, delicious meals! This is such a great recipe!
For me meal prepping can be a daunting experience, but with your technique of making it a sheet pan meal, it’s much more approachable! Cheers to a healthier year 🙂
This looks beyond tasty. I love meal prepping healthy dishes like this, so it’s perfect for me right now!
Such an awesome, healthy meal!
This is a flavor of recipe I could eat over and over! I love the Greek flavors with the chicken! So yummy! Thanks for sharing!
I really enjoyed this! I made it last night & took it for lunch today. I forgot to add the balsamic when I cooked it. So I added it and left it in for an additional 5 mins. It was still delicious. Then when I added the feta to it – WOW! so much flavor. I will be making this dish again and again
Maya | Wholesome Yum0
I’m so glad you liked it, Lisa! I’ve done that before too and it totally works to just add the balsamic at the end as well.
Do you know of a suitable substitute to the onion? Both my husband and I because of Gerd and I have to follow the FODMAP choices have to eliminate onion and garlic. Just mention two of many other things. But for starters – The Onion.
Maya | Wholesome Yum0
Hi Marie, You can replace the onion with other veggies if you’d like. Yellow squash would be my first choice.
I used onion powder. The same amount as the garlic powder.
