  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon Greek seasoning

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated or minced

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, quartered lengthwise

  • 6 tablespoons tzatziki sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 head romaine, trimmed, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces

  • ½ cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

  • ½ English cucumber, sliced

  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, Greek seasoning, lemon juice, and garlic in a glass bowl; mix well. Add chicken to marinade and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but not longer than 4 hours.

  2. Mix tzatziki, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl. Refrigerate salad dressing until needed.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Place chicken pieces on the grill and cook for 5 minutes, turn, and grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  5. Combine romaine lettuce, bell pepper, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes in a salad bowl. Drizzle with tzatziki dressing and toss to coat. Divide salad into 4 equal portions and top with cooked chicken.
