Greek Chicken Bites

These easy Greek Chicken Bites come together in a snap for a perfect weeknight meal or lunch prep starter. Eat ‘em plain for a low-carb main dish, make a rice or quinoa bowl with veggies and Greek dressing, put them on a salad with some Feta cheese, wrap them in a pita with some tzatziki sauce (I have a great tzatziki recipe here). However you serve them, you’ll find these Greek chicken bites are super versatile and delicious! My Blackened Chicken Bites are one of the recipes I make most frequently, and once I saw what a success they were with readers as well, I thought I should share more flavors of my chicken-bites-in-a-skillet! These Greek ones are full of herb-y goodness and brown up perfectly in the pan. I can’t wait to see and hear about the creative ways you choose to serve them, so definitely let me know in the comments, or tag me in a photo on Instagram!

When I weighed my finished Greek Chicken Bites they were almost 13 ounces total. I decided to call it 4 servings of 3 ounces each (which would be 12 ounces) because it’s simpler, but just an FYI that your servings may be slightly bigger that 3 ounces. With that said, each filling 3(ish) ounce serving of Chicken is just 168 calories, 1 gram of carbs, or 3 Green, 1 Blue, or 1 Purple WW SmartPoints!

Greek Chicken Bites

These easy Greek Chicken Bites are versatile and flavorful - perfect for salads, wraps, and more!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lb raw boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small bite-sized pieces

Instructions

  • Add the oil to a large saute pan or skillet and bring over med-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the basil, oregano, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper to the oil and stir into the oil. Cook for 30-60 seconds until fragrant. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and stir to coat in the oil and herbs. Cook, stirring occasionally (not frequently, because you want to give it time to get a little golden brown on the bottom before flipping), for 4-6 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and serve.

  1. This looks delicious. I am on the purple plan and I love brown rice. Whole wheat pasta and brown rice have been such a satisfying food for m since it is zero points. YUM!!!!

    Thank you for all you do to provide the nutritional and points info.

  2. I love your collection of Greek recipes.  It’s such a healthy & delicious way to eat.  Thanks for ALL of your lovely recipes. 🙂

  3. Can’t wait to try this! The cucumber, tomato, and olive salad you have pictured on the side looks delicious as well. Do you add anything to that like seasoning? 🙂

    • It’s basically the top layer from my Greek Layer Dip which is on my site! There’s a light dressing I make to go on it (not pictured here) that you can find in the dip recipe 🙂

  4. Would love the recipe for the salad that you have with your Greek Chicken.  Looks so good!   

  5. I made this last night it was absolutely delicious. Just curious do you have a recipe for the brown rice (pictured in the photo) as well. Would love to combine these two things together.

    • It’s actually just one of the Uncle Ben’s 90 second rice packets…I think the long grain & wild rice blend. It’s pretty good!

  6. I like every dishes have a combination of meat, vegetable, and starch like this recipe. The chicken is infused seasoned evenly, tomato and cucumber are crisp. But I like white steamed rice than this kind. In general, this recipe is very good for lunch. Thank you very much!

  7. This one is a winner! We really enjoyed it and it was so easy and quick!

  8. These were so simple and soooo delicious! This recipe has been added to my weekly rotation. Thank you! 

  9. I think this is the first recipe I’ve ever “rated”. It is so flavorful, and so simple! I made it for myself one night when the kids were out, enjoyed the leftovers, and then made it for them less than a week later. They loved it too!
    I didn’t use any oil, but instead put some chicken broth in the pan to help the herbs coat the chicken. We put it in pitas with tzatziki sauce, feta, and onion as optional toppings – yum!5 stars
