Do you dream of far away places based on the food you are eating? This Gluten Free Mediterranean Chicken Salad makes me dream of eating it overlooking the Mediterranean Sea!
My daughter requested a recipe for my mediterranean chicken salad so this is for her. As a foodie Mom it makes my heart happy that both of my girls like to cook and are pretty darn good at it! It’s super fun to watch what they make and honestly we send each other food pictures… totally nerdy I know! But I love it.
I know most of the world is eating everything pumpkin but it’s still almost 100 degrees in Arizona and it doesn’t feel like fall yet… unless you are up at the crack of dawn and then it’s beautiful outside. Just ask my hubby! lol
I love this Mediterranean chicken salad because it is a fast lunch or dinner and most of the ingredients are staples in my kitchen so that makes it easy.
What Ingredients Do I Need To Make This Mediterranean Chicken Salad?
This is what I love to put in my salad, however if you don’t like anything you can leave it out or substitute it for your favs!
S & P
Roasted Red Peppers
To start off this recipe, you will need to cook the chicken. Put the chicken breasts in a baking dish that you have drizzled with olive oil.
Lay the breasts in the pan.
Drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar.
Sprinkle with greek seasoning and S & P.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes or until they reach an internal temp of 165 degrees F.
While the chicken is cooking, I like to start on the chopping of my salad.
I start with kitchen shears and the arugula, so the pieces aren’t so big. Lay the arugula in the bottom of a bowl. Use kitchen shears to chop it up a little.
Arrange the rest of your chopped ingredients into sections on top of the arugula.
Make a simple dressing in a bowl of EVOO, red wine vinegar, greek seasoning, garlic powder and S & P. Whisk it all together.
Once the chicken is cooked, slice it into pieces and arrange it on your plate. Serve with the salad. You can toss the salad so you get a little bit if each topping…. unless you are like me and just want to eat feta lol.
