  • 2 chicken breasts, no bones or skin
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Juice and zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  2. Cook the Chicken: Heat the grill to a medium-high setting. Cook the chicken for about 6-7 minutes each side until done. Allow it to cool slightly before cutting into strips.
  3. Create the Salad: Toss the greens, tomatoes, cucumber, and onion in a large bowl. Add a touch of olive oil, the rest of the lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar for dressing. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  4. Dish Up: Lay out the salad on plates, top with the grilled chicken, and garnish with feta cheese and olives. Finish with a sprinkle of lemon zest for a fresh twist.

This dish is not just a feast for the senses with its vibrant flavors but also nourishes your body with essential proteins, fats, and a variety of vitamins from the greens. It’s an ideal, balanced meal that’s ready in roughly 30 minutes, making it perfect for those hectic evenings.
