Ingredient Substitutions and Recipe Variations

Can These Bowl Be Made In Advance?
You can definitely make these bowls even easier to make by cooking the quinoa, chicken, and veggies and prepping the tzatziki sauce ahead of time so that they're super easy to throw together when you're ready to eat. I don't recommend slicing the cucumber or tomatoes until it's time to serve, so that they don't get soggy.
