Meal-Prep Greek Chicken and Veggies with Tzatziki

The chicken and veggies are coated with a flavorful Greek marinade then pan roasted for 20 minutes. While the veggies are baking, this delicious tzatziki is than prepared. It’s made with yogurt, cucumber, garlic and herbs. I like to place the tzatziki in small 4-oz  so I can just pour the cold tzatziki on the chicken and veggies after heating.

After the chicken and veggies are done, they are divided into  along with brown rice and pita bread. refrigerate for 4-5 days and enjoy a healthy flavorful protein packed lunch that will satisfy and save you money too!
