Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken

By Logo inline

Chicken turns this Greek-inspired salad into a substantial main course. Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare the rest of the salad. Serve with pita bread and hummus.

Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup red-wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, or oregano or 1 teaspoon dried

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken, (about 12 ounces; see Tip)

  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe black olives

  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions
  1. Whisk vinegar, oil, dill (or oregano), garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives and feta; toss to coat.

Tip: If you don’t have cooked chicken, poach 1 pound chicken breasts for this recipe. Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water (or chicken broth) to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes.
