  • Combine chicken broth, quinoa, and garlic in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until quinoa is tender and water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place peppers with cut sides down onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Let peppers cool for a few minutes before slicing and placing in a bowl.

  • Place tomatoes, chickpeas, olives, and onion each into a separate bowl.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Combine olive oil, vinegar, feta cheese, lemon juice, black pepper, oregano, dill, and granulated garlic in a bowl. Whisk dressing, making sure to break up feta cheese.

  • Grill chicken until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 8 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from heat and let rest about 10 minutes.

  • Assemble 6 bowls by spooning quinoa into the bottom. Add cucumbers, roasted peppers, tomatoes, olives, chickpeas, and red onions around the perimeter of the bowl. Add chicken.

  • Whisk dressing really well and spoon equally over bowls.
