Prep

  1. Cauliflower rice - (This makes enough for 2 nights.) Pulse florets in a food processor until broken up into ‘rice’-sized bits. Cook rice in one of two ways: 1) Microwave for 4 to 5 minutes and then fold in butter. Season with some salt and pepper; or 2) Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add butter. Saute cauliflower in heated butter for ~5 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Watch this video for the full how-to on cauliflower rice. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Garlic / Broccoli / Bell peppers / Onions / Olives - Prep as directed. Combine peppers and onions. Store other ingredients separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Dill (for chicken bowls and dressing) - Chop dill. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  4. Chicken - Slice chicken into cubes. Combine with first portion of oil, dill, lemon juice (portions for chicken), and oregano. Marinate for 20 minutes.
  5. Make dressing - Combine dill, lemon juice (portions for dressing), honey, and tahini. Season with some salt and pepper.

  3. To broccoli, add bell peppers and onions. Saute until tender, ~2 minutes more. Stir in olives. Season with some salt and pepper. Set vegetables aside and return pan to heat.
  4. Add third portion of oil and then chicken and saute until chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. In the last minute of cooking, add garlic.
  5. If cauliflower rice was made ahead, reheat in the microwave (reserve half for Thursday).
  6. Assemble bowls by topping cauliflower rice with chicken and vegetables. Finish bowls with dressing on top. Enjoy!

I'm dairy-free and it was tough getting the taste and texture of the sauce right with vegan sour cream (capers, garlic, and a splash of rice vinegar helped a little) - next time, I'll just use cashew yogurt instead. I tossed the chickpeas in oregano and roasted instead of doing them on the stovetop - will probably do the same with the broccoli next time.

Love bowls because it allows each family member to build their own meal. This one was good. Might double the sauce next time.

It was good but not remarkable. The flavour of the chicken and veggies was bland. I think the sauce is the best part.

This was really good. Missed the oregano bc it’s not in the recipe instructions or I missed it somehow. I’d make the sauce w yogurt next time. Great as lunch leftovers, too.
