Ingredients for Chicken Power Bowl

  • 1 baby cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 slice of red onion, diced

  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup of crumbled feta

Choosing Fresh Vegetables

You’ll want tasty, vibrant vegetables for this dish. Use the tips below to ensure you’re getting the freshest vegetables possible.

  1. Cucumber: Look for firm cucumbers with a bright green color. Avoid cucumbers that are soft or have wrinkled skin.
  2. Bell Pepper: Choose bell peppers that are firm and have a glossy skin. The color should be vibrant, with no signs of shriveling or soft spots.
  3. Banana Peppers: Look for banana peppers that are firm and smooth. They should have a bright yellow color and feel heavy for their size.
  4. Red Onion: Select red onions that are firm and have a shiny, unblemished skin. Avoid onions that are soft or have signs of mold.
  5. Other Options: If you choose to add olives, artichokes, or chickpeas, look for olives that are plump and shiny, artichokes that are firm with tightly closed leaves, and chickpeas that are firm and have a consistent color.

Overall, fresh vegetables used in the Chicken Power Bowl should be vibrant in color, firm to the touch, and free from blemishes or signs of decay. These characteristics indicate that the vegetables are fresh and will contribute to a delicious and nutritious meal.

Making the Shredded Chicken

Start by cooking your chicken breasts.  For shredded chicken, I like to use a pressure cooker or crock pot.  Add 2 breasts with reduced-sodium chicken broth, salt, pepper, and jarred garlic (or “jarlic” as I like to say). Cook on high for 22 minutes for pressure cooker or 3.5 hours for crockpot.  Once done, the chicken should shred easily and be ready for your Chicken Power Bowl, nachos, casseroles, or you can freeze it for later.  

*Short on time?  Use store-bought rotisserie chicken for this step. 

Instructions

  1. Dice the cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, and banana peppers and add to a bowl.  
  2. Add the cottage cheese, feta, dressing, and chicken
  3. Stir to combine
  4. Enjoy cold now or refrigerate for later

Bringing It All Together

Dice up the fresh vegetables like cucumber, bell pepper, banana peppers, and red onion. Using a chopper makes this step a breeze and ensures all your pieces are the same size. Once your veggies are diced, add them to a bowl along with the shredded chicken. Top with cottage cheese, Greek dressing, and crumbled feta cheese. Mix everything together until well combined. These Chicken Power Bowls are best served cold, making them perfect for meal prep.

    Are you able to substitute the cottage cheese? I can’t physically eat cottage cheese 🤣😂

      If it’s a texture thing, try blending the cottage cheese first. Another option would be plain yogurt.

    This was AMAZING!!! I’m not a big cottage cheese fan and my son is even less so! I was a bit nervous about this recipe. But, the nerves disappeared with the first bite. We both GOBBLED this up and one of us was even spied licking the bowl! You can’t even tell there’s cottage cheese in it!! It’s FULL of flavor and so refreshing, not to mention easy – especially if you have the chopper, which I do. I marinated my chicken for 1/2 an hour in a 1/4 cup of the dressing prior to cooking it, but I don’t think that’s necessary. I can’t wait to make it again!! Definitely going in the rotation. Thank you!!

      So glad you liked it and that’s a great idea about using the dressing as a marinade. I’ll have to give that a whirl.
