Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast skinless, boneless
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved or quartered
  • 1 English cucumber diced
  • 1/3 cup pitted olives sliced
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 1 cup crumbled Feta cheese

For Tzatziki sauce:

  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 1/4 English cucumber grated and squeeze the excess moisture
  • 2 cups full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3-4 garlic cloves pressed or minced
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • To make the Tzatziki sauce, mix all Tzatziki ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Refrigerate until ready to use. It gets better after sitting in the fridge, as all the flavors meld. It's just perfect the next day, so you can make this one ahead.
  • Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until it's golden brown on the outside and cooked through (internal temp should read 165F / 75C).
  • Once it's done, place the chicken on a plate and top it with Tzatziki sauce, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, onions, and crumbled Feta cheese.
    Enjoy!
