Instructions


  1. Place chicken in gallon size bag with the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Seal and mix. Place in the fridge to marinate for 2-3 hours (make sure not to let it marinate longer than 3 hours because the lemon juice will start breaking down the chicken).
  2. Peel the cucumbers, quarter them, and slice them. Place in a large bowl. Slice the onion and cube the tomatoes - place in the bowl with the cucumbers. Add Feta and olives.
  3. Grill or broil chicken breasts for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through (internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees F). Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and add it to the salad.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, peeled cucumber, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, dill, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Mix well and pour over the veggies and chicken, 
  5. Toss to combine all ingredients and enjoy!
