  2. Heat the grill and grill the chicken breasts on both sides until cooked.

  2. Add cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, olives, feta cheese and parsley. Gently stir everything together to coat with the dressing. Add additional fresh lemon zest or juice (optional) to taste. Set aside.
  3. Assemble the bowl: Add about 1 cup of your favorite healthy grain, add chicken and top with the greek salad. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grab and fork or spoon and enjoy!
