Chicken Hummus Bistro Box

A delicious and simple Greek yogurt marinade makes this chicken hummus bistro box the best you'll ever have!

Ingredients

For the chicken:

  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 heaping tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts

To assemble boxes:

  • 1 large cucumber thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup hummus homemade or store-bought
  • 4 mini whole wheat pitas

Instructions

  • To marinate the chicken, combine the garlic, lemon juice, yogurt, olive oil, oregano, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined. Add chicken to the bowl and turn each piece to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. 
  • Cook chicken as desired, either on the grill or using a grill pan or skillet with a thin coat of olive oil. Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into strips, if desired. 
  • To assemble lunch boxes, arrange chicken, cucumber slices, tomatoes, hummus, and pita bread in meal prep containers. Store in the fridge and enjoy throughout the week! 

Notes

  • Try not to let the chicken rest in its yogurt marinade for much longer than 75-90 minutes if possible. If left for a long time, the presence of the lemon juice in the marinade could negatively affect the texture of the chicken.
  • These are my favorite light-weight meal prep containers - convenient size, microwave and dishwasher-safe!
