  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1¼ to 1½ pounds total)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 medium cucumbers, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium red and/or yellow tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup sliced red onion
  • Mixed salad greens (optional)
  • ⅓ cup bottled reduced-calorie creamy cucumber salad dressing
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
  • ¼ cup pitted kalamata olives or ripe olives


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, oregano, garlic, and pepper. Pour over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss together cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion.
  3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until tender and no longer pink (170°F), turning once.
  4. Transfer chicken to a cutting board; cut into bite-size pieces. Toss with cucumber mixture. If desired, serve on salad greens. Drizzle salad dressing over. Sprinkle with feta cheese and olives.
