In a bowl, combine the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, turmeric, cinnamon, salt, and pepper to create the marinade for the chicken.

Add the sliced chicken to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well coated.

Let it marinate for at least 10 minutes.

While the chicken is marinating, prepare the Mediterranean bowl ingredients.

Cook quinoa or couscous according to package instructions and chop the tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, olives, and feta.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the marinated chicken and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked and slightly browned.

In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, chopped mint, salt, and pepper to create the yogurt sauce.

Assemble the Mediterranean Chicken Shawarma Bowls by dividing the cooked quinoa or couscous among four bowls.
