Keto Greek Grilled Chicken Salad

Posted by

It’s almost July which means it is prime grilling season! Once the temperatures start inching closer to 100 degrees in the afternoon, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven.  This Keto Greek Grilled Chicken Salad is the perfect solution. It’s fast, delicious and full of flavor.. My favorite way to eat it is with a quick Greek salad.

Go ahead and make up the recipe a day ahead of time and let the chicken marinate overnight. It’ll have time to absorb all the flavors! It’s okay if you forget, you can let the chicken hangout in the bowl for 15 minutes while you fire up the grill and chop up vegetables for the salad. I promise it will still taste incredible.

Ingredients

Keto Greek Grilled Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra virgins olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tblsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme*
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs

Greek Salad

  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ½ head of green leaf lettuce, chopped
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 ounces feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Directions

Chicken

Combine all of the ingredients except chicken thighs and thoroughly incorporate them. Add the chicken thighs and toss them around. If you’re doing this the day before, cover the chicken and put into the fridge until you’re ready to grill. If you’re running low on time, just set the bowl aside and put the salad together.

Once you’re ready to cook, preheat your grill to medium-high heat, or around 400 degrees. Grill on each side for 6-7 minutes. Chicken thighs tend to stay moist even if slightly over cooked, so don’t worry if you leave them on a bit longer!

Chop up all of the vegetables and place in a bowl. In a cup or small jar, mix the olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon, salt and oregano. Pour over the vegetables then top with feta cheese. You can add black olives and diced bell pepper if you want.

Divide the chicken and salad into 4-6 servings.

*Feel free to use dried thyme if that is all you have, but only use 1 tsp. Dried herbs are more concentrated in flavor.
