Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise to make 4 pieces
  • 2 tsp EVOO
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1½ tsp fresh Greek oregano, chopped (dried may be substituted, but use a lesser amount)
  • 1½ tsp fresh dill, chopped ( dried may be substituted, but use a lesser amount)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3-4 Tablespoons 2% milk ( any milk works well)
  • 1½ Tablespoons red onion, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • Fresh oregano, chopped for garnish
  • Mixed salad greens with  olives, cucumbers, red onion, thin sliced
  • Optional: Dolmas (stuffed grape leaves)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 tsp EVOO, red wine vinegar, oregano, dill, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
  2. Pound chicken between sheets of waxed paper to a 1/4” thickness. Cut each piece in half to yield approximately 6-8 pieces of chicken breast.
  3. Add chicken breasts to the marinade, cover & refrigerate 30 minutes. (this step can be prepared ahead of time until ready for cooking.)
  4. In a small bowl, combine the Feta cheese, garlic powder, 2% milk & chopped red onion. Using a fork, mash well to make a spread. Add additional milk if too thick until you reach desired consistency. (this step can be prepared ahead of time & refrigerated until ready to serve)
  5. In a grill pan or large skillet drizzle 1 tsp of EVOO, then using a paper towel, coat pan.
  6. Heat pan to medium-high. Once hot, place half the chicken pieces in the pan and cook until browned approximately 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan & set aside. Cook remaining chicken breasts and set aside.
  7. Place mixed salad greens on a dinner plate then top with cooked chicken breast(s).  Garnish the chicken with Feta cheese spread.  Arrange tomato slices on the dish and garnish with fresh Greek oregano.

 

 

Notes: Recipe adapted from Weight Watchers.  To enhance this Greek meal, drizzle salad greens with EVOO, red wine vinegar, add a little feta cheese, red onion, cucumber, and some Greek olives for a side salad. The creamy feta cheese spread is delicious on any vegetable or baked potato.
