Tips for making Grilled Greek Chicken Salad


  • It’s really important that you don’t skimp on the marinating time! Leaving the chicken in the marinade for at least an hour will allow the flavors to permeate the chicken before you cook it.
  • If you don’t want to cook the chicken on and outdoor grill then I recommend you use a cast iron grill pan, it does a fantastic job!
  • If your red wine vinaigrette has been sitting for a while you’ll need to remix it before you pour it over your grilled Greek Chicken salad.
  • Don’t like Feta? You can substitute it for another cheese instead, but it may not be truly Greek then!
