Greek Chicken Salad

I like an occasional salad as a main dish meal - especially on busy nights! With chicken, Feta cheese, spinach and tomatoes being some of my favorite ingredients - it only seemed natural to incorporate them into a Greek Chicken Salad.

Yield: 6 servings

For the marinade:
½ cup olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 lemons, juiced

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

For the salad:
1 bag (16 oz.) fresh spinach leaves
3 roma tomatoes, sliced
1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced
½ cup chopped red onion
Crumbled Feta cheese

For the salad dressing:
⅓ cup olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. Dijon-style mustard
½ cup red wine vinegar

In a large zip-top bag, combine the marinade ingredients. Squeeze to mix well. Add the boneless, skinless chicken breasts to the bag. Marinate for at least hours in the refrigerator.

In a medium bowl, combine all of the salad dressing ingredients. Pour into a salad dressing cruet. Store tightly covered at room temperature until serving time.

Preheat a grill to medium. Place chicken on oiled cooking grates and cook, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear, turning twice.

Plate the spinach. Top with tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, Feta cheese. Slice the chicken and place atop the salad. Serve with salad dressing on the side.
