Marinated chunks of grilled chicken breast served over a bed of lettuce with feta, fresh diced tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, black olives, red onions, parsley and dill tossed in olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb skinless boneless chicken breast (cut into 1 inch cubes)

For the marinade:

  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic (crushed)
  • kosher salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

For the salad:

  • 1 1/4 cups cucumber (peeled)
  • 1 1/4 cups diced tomato
  • 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp red onion (diced)
  • 1/4 cup black olives
  • 1 1/2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh dillweed
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (grated (omit for paleo))
  • lemon wedges for serving

Instructions

  • Marinate the chicken at least 2-3 hours or overnight.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak in water at least 30 minutes if grilling outdoors.
  • Combine the first 12 salad ingredients (cucumbers through salt and black pepper, not the lettuce) and set aside in the refrigerator to let the flavors set.
  • Thread chicken on 4 skewers and cook on a hot grill (indoor or outdoor grill) until chicken is cooked though, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Divide lettuce between four plates, top with tomato-cucumber salad, fresh grated feta cheese and grilled chicken.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
