How It’s Made!
You’ll love how easily this Italian chicken salad comes together! All the ingredients come together so nicely! First up, the flavorful and juicy chicken! I season the chicken breast with lemon juice, thyme and loads of olive oil. Let the chicken marinate in the lemon juice for at least 30 minutes for best flavor. The chicken is then pan-fried to perfection and sliced for the salad. This salad has a little bit of everything!
The salad base is made with creamy avocado, romaine lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes. For the toppings, I add loads of feta cheese, salty green olives, briny capers and marinated artichoke hearts. All those incredible ingredients taste so great with the lemon chicken! The salad dressing is also super simple and easy to make! Just mix together a bit of wine, olive oil and lemon juice! It’s a light and aromatic dressing. Pour the dressing over the chicken salad when you’re ready to enjoy!
