Galic Lemon Chicken Bites
AIP & Fat Loss Friendly

Growing up in Chicago, I was surrounded by fantastic Greek food. You can throw a rock and hit a good Greek place in Chicago, and get a chicken dish that will knock your socks off.

Since moving to Austin eight years ago, I really really miss the Mediterranean fare of my hometown. So pretty much every chicken dish I make is an attempt to recreate the magic of the Greek restaurants from my childhood.

Mediterranean food is not only delicious, but it also happens to be healthy, and many dishes are easily adapted to be AIP, paleo, and lower in carbs. And before you ask, I am not a pusher of the “Mediterranean diet” because I am a firm believer in my Undieting Framework. That said, Mediterranean food DOES fit perfectly into the undieting framework, so do with that information what you will haha.

Delicious & Healthy Grecian Chicken Bites

These Grecian inspired chicken bites are out-of-this-world delicious. They’re also a very practical way to cook chicken, as they work in so many dishes. You can prep these bites on a Sunday, and use them all sorts of ways throughout the week!

  • Author: Brenda Turner


  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • salt to taste
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • italian seasoning
  • dried basil
  • 1 Large handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 large lemons, zested
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about 1/4 cup)
  • Olive oil, (I recommend the Lucini Garlic Infused Olive Oil)


  1. Chop chicken into 1 inch pieces
  2. Season chicken with salt, garlic powder, & dried herbs, using an even coating around all the sides. Use only a dash of the onion powder.
  3. Pour 1 Tbsp of olive oil over the chicken, and toss chicken to coat
  4. Heat a pan to medium-high, and heat until the pan sizzles when you place water into it.
  5. When your pan is hot, put 1 Tbsp of olive oil in the pan
  6. Add chicken breast and brown on all sides (about 6-10 minutes)
  7. Reduce the heat to low-medium and add garlic and lemon zest. Mix the garlic and lemon zest into the chicken, and cook until fragrant (about 1 minute)
  8. Add lemon juice and reduce heat to low. Scrape any brown bits off the pan to add flavor to the lemon juice.
  9. Simmer until the lemon juice has thickened a little (about 2 minutes)
  10. Add chopped parsley and stir into chicken bites, allow flavors to merry, about 30 seconds
  11. Remove chicken and serve
