Rebecca's Chicken Salad

Here's a fun salad I came up with recently, its a combination of cuisines, grilled chicken, seasonal salad and Greek style roast potatoes.


  • about 10 small potatoes diced 
  • olive oil
  • one tablespoon of Greek or Italian herbs, also fresh oregano if handy
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped 
  • a sprinkle of sea salt
  • 2 thinly sliced chicken breasts - marinated in pizza seasoning - a herb blend of onion, bell pepper, fennel, garlic, basil, chili pepper, parsley, marjoram and celery 
  • chopped tomatoes
  • a small handful of blueberries
  • mixed greens
  • chopped cucumber

  1. marinate the chicken breast in olive oil to coat it and the pizza seasoning for 1- 2 hours
  2. meanwhile add the chopped potatoes to a good oven dish coat with olive oil, pepper and sea salt the Greek herbs and oregano and bake at 400 degrees for 45- minutes to 60 minutes until soft in middle and crispy on outside 
  3. after the chicken is marinated grill for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked
  4. make a seasonal salad of choice, add some potatoes to it, you will find it will have enough oil with the herbs infused that a dressing is not needed
  5. slice the chicken and top the salad with it
  6. if desired add any desired cheese to the top and enjoy ;-)
