I recently made the Greek Tacos on my web series, 29 Minute Meals and remembered how much I LOVE the tomato cucumber salsa that goes on top!

I decided to come home and create a new recipe featuring that salsa and now we have Greek Chicken Zoodle Bowls!

I gave the greek chicken a quick marinade while preparing the salsa, then while the chicken was grilling, I spiralized and sautéed the zoodles, and the whole recipe came together in under 30 minutes! Winning!

Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a grill* over medium heat for 10-12 minutes per side.

*In the winter I use the indoor Optigrill for all of my grilling and I highly recommend it! You can also use a grill pan, which I also own and use for things like meatballs and burgers in the winter!

While the chicken is grilling, spiralize the zucchini noodles with a spiralizer, then add the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil to a large skillet and add the zucchini noodles. Saute 3-5 minutes.

Spoon the tomato cucumber salad over the greek chicken and zoodles. Optionally sprinkle feta cheese and fresh mint over the bowls. Serve each bowl with a lemon wedge to squeeze over the bowl.
