Chicken:
I marinated my chicken in:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 freshly minced garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper

(I ended up adding a little bit more to thoroughly coat my chicken)

I got the chicken in the oven to broil for about 7 minutes on each side

Meanwhile… I made my fresh veggie salad and tzatziki

  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • About 10 grape tomatoes

Tzatziki sauce:

Once the chicken was cooked, I let it cool and cubed it. I added the chicken to the veggie salad and tossed it. I served the chicken salad with tzatziki and rice, once it was on my plate- I mixed it all together and it was AMAzing!
