When in doubt, Greek Salad it is! So simple and a fuss free meal that can be enjoyed in Spring/ Summer for lunch or dinner.
The cheat's version is to buy a pre cooked BBQ chicken and toss it through the salad before serving, that way no cooking is required at all.
120g chicken thigh
½ tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 cup iceberg lettuce
1 small cucumber, diced
½ tomato, diced
¼ avocado, chopped
1 cup spinach
20g feta (2 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon capers (optional)
½ teaspoon dried oregano (to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tablespoon EVOO
¼ lemon, juiced
Place chicken in a pan with EVOO until cooked through. Slice it into pieces and set aside.
Shred the lettuce and chop the cucumber, tomato, capsicum and avocado. Place into a salad bowl.
Add the spinach, feta, olives, capers and chicken to the bowl.
Drizzle the salad with EVOO and lemon juice.
Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Toss and serve!
- Chicken: 120g for females, 150g for males.
- Time saving hacks: Cook 1kg of chicken at the start of the week and use the remaining chicken for other meals. Alternatively, purchase a pre-cooked BBQ chicken or shredded chicken breast from the deli or market to avoid cooking it at home. Schedule
