Paleo Whole30 Greek Chicken Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds organic chicken breast

Marinade

Salad

  • 3 romaine hearts, washed and chopped
  • 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • 1 english cucumber, chopped
  • 1 red or orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 green onion, chopped about 1 bunch, green parts only*
  • avocado if desired*

Instructions

  • If chicken breast are large, pound them out to make more even or slice in half horizontally. Place them in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In a measuring cup, combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic oil, coconut vinegar, salt, pepper, and oregano. Whisk to combine. Pour 1/2 cup of the mixture into a jar to be used to the dressing and pour the remaining mixture over the chicken.
  • Marinade chicken for 30 minutes or up to overnight. You can use that time to cut the veggies if that's not already prepped.
  • Place the cut romaine in a bowl (or bowls) and top with all the veggies.
  • Once chicken is ready to cook, heat up a skillet over medium heat and add the chicken with some of the marinade to the pan. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  • Cut into strips and place on the salad.

Notes

*If not needing low FODMAP, use 1 teaspoon garlic powder in the marinade and sliced red onion in the salad if desired.
*Limit avocado for low fodmap. 1/8 of an avocado is considered safe.
