Description

This Greek salad with chicken is easy to make and full of fresh, bold flavors. It also uses a classic Greek dressing, which doubles as a marinade for the chicken.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
  • 5 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup diced English cucumber (from 1 cucumber)
  • ½ cup sliced kalamata olives
  • ½ cup cubed feta
  • ½ cup sliced red onion (about ¼ of onion)
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped (garden, plum or Roma tomatoes)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley
  • Lemon wedges, optional for serving

Greek Dressing & Marinade:

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dijon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken: slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 chicken cutlets.
  2. Marinate the chicken: In an airtight container, add ¼ cup of the dressing to the chicken and marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  3. Mix the dressing: in a small bowl, add all of the dressing ingredients and stir or whisk until emulsified and completely mixed.
  4. Cook the chicken: heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side, until cooked through to 165°F. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes and then slice into thin strips.
  5. Make the salad: add all of the salad ingredients, including the cooked chicken, to a large bowl.
  6. Add the dressing: drizzle as much of the dressing as desired over the top and toss to mix.
  7. Serve: serve immediately. Optionally, garnish with a sprinkle of oregano and lemon wedges for serving.
