Greek Chicken Salad


A quick Greek inspired chicken salad. It is perfect for one and can easily be increased for more. Chop up some fresh vegetables and quickly saute some chicken in lemon and oregano for a tasty meal. The salad does not have amounts because you can add what you like, in the amounts you like and the dressing is a simple squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, some red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss and serve.



You will need: 


  • 1 chicken breast- chopped into small cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lemon zested and juiced
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • romaine lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • fresh basil
  • a few cubes of feta cheese
  • some olives
  • a few sliced onions


  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • a bit of red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper


Step 1: chop chicken and place in a small bowl. Add garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, salt,  pepper, olive oil and honey. Mix and set aside while you prepare salad.



Step 2: chop all your favourite vegetables and add to a bowl. Chop feta and have some fresh basil leaves ready for topping. Get your ingredients for the dressing ready or you can make it in a small jar. I use equal lemon and vinegar to oil. Pour over salad and adjust salt and pepper as you like it.



Step 3: saute your chicken until browned and cooked through.



Step 4: mix dressing in salad and plate. Top with feta, chicken and some basil leaves.
