How to make Greek Chicken Salad
When making Greek salad I tend to do a lot of the preparation ahead of time so that all that’s left to do is sizzle the chicken and dress the salad.
Greek Salad with Chicken
- 2 Large Chicken Breast skinless and boneless
- 1 tbs Olive Oil
- 1 knob Butter
- 2 tsp Dried Oregano
- 1 Cucumber sliced
- 250 g Baby Plum Tomatoes halved
- 1/2 Small Red Onion thinly sliced
- 1/2 jar Crespo Greek Style Olives pitted and rinsed
- 150 g Feta Cheese crumbled
- 80 g Bag Salad Leaves choose Italian or Bistro salad
- 1 serving Tzatziki get recipe below
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
- 1 tsp Dried Oregano
- 1 pinch Sea Salt
- 1 pinch Cracked Black Pepper
- Heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan or skillet. Season the chicken breasts with salt, black pepper and 2 tsp of dried oregano and fry until cooked through properly (chicken is cooked when no pink remains, juices run clear and it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165F) Once cooked set aside to rest a few minutes before slicing.
- Whilst the chicken cooks – mix up your Greek Salad, in a large bowl toss together the cucumber, baby tomatoes, red onion and pitted olives.
- Mix up the salad dressing – whisk the olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried oregano and seasoning.
- Put together your salad platter – scatter the salad leaves over a large plate, tip on the Greek salad vegetables, scatter over the feta cheese, slide on the sliced chicken breast – pour a little of the pan juices over it to keep it moist. Drizzle over the salad dressing and add a side dish of tzatziki dip.
