Chicken Gyro Bowls

This recipe is our take on immitating one of our favorite new restaraunts, Cava.

If you haven’t been, Cava is like a mediterranean Chipotle.

You build a bowl that includes rice, greens, chicken, and a bunch of flavorful toppings.

So we did our best to immitate that here with marinated chicken, hummus, tzatziki, and a bunch of vegetables.


Chicken Gyro Rice Bowl

We use cauliflower, radishes, and brussel sprouts, but you can replace them with anything.

I didn’t include it in this recipe but you can add in sweet potatoes to bring in some savory flavors too.

What’s great about this recipe is that it’s honestly super easy.

You roast all the vegetables and chicken, cook the rice, blitz the tzatziki, and you’re basically done.

The longest part is waiting about 40 minutes for everything to roast in the oven.

Vegetables Pre Cook

Oven roasted chicken is seriously my favorite new kitchen hack.

The chicken always comes out super juicy and tender, and it’s so easy.

How long you roast the chicken depends on the cut, thickness, and total amount of chicken you’re roasting.

If you have a different cut or amount of chicken I recommend Googling how to best roast it, but it’s so worth it.

For the marinade we used a pork marinade because it had the flavor profile we wanted, but again you could honestly use anything.

Vegetables Post Cook

We make a homemade tzatziki because it’s cheap, easy, and tastes really fresh.

I grew up a picky eater and what helps me overcome my picky eating is watching food be made.

I had an aversion to white sauces, especially mayonnaise, when I was a kid.

To be honest I still can’t eat it, and I put tzatziki in the same category because it was also a white sauce.

But once I saw that tzatziki is just yogurt, cucumber, dill, and olive oil, it made me a lot more comfortable eating it.

Yes, I know mayonnaise is basically just egg whites, but I still can’t do it.

Chicken Gyro Bowls And Rice

We don’t make our own hummus for this recipe just to keep it really easy, but you definitely could.

The more homemade things you can add the better as it really makes a difference flavoring the gyro bowls.

When all of the ingredients are ready just throw it into a bowl, mix, and enjoy!

Add a little sriracha to make it spicy.
